An accomplished and popular local speaker with a wide range of interests, Denis Pepper began public speaking as a 10-year-old in the CWS Music and Literary Festivals. On joining Folkestone Round Table he became a prominent member of their hugely successful Debate Team. Subsequently he has been in demand as a Rotarian speaker and, since publishing his book Botolphin 2010, which was inspired by the seventh century Benedictine monk, Saint Botolph, Denis has given talks throughout Kent and Sussex. In the summer he spends his time sailing (and writing) in the Mediterranean.
He has just completed his second book in the Botolph Trilogy.
Denis Pepper will talk about the discipline of organising a writing routine, and technical issues such as the design and printing of book-covers, describing how to bind the trial copies cheaply and easily yourself. He justifies this extra work by pointing out that with self-publishing it is essential to get things right before sending the finished product to the printers, whose job does not include correcting errors; you must either do that yourself or employ the services of a professional.
He will also cover areas of importance that will include reviews, marketing, Amazon, e-readers and battling with booksellers.
The talk is free to attend but advance booking is essential.
This event is open to the public.
Venue: University Centre Folkestone,
Time: 18:00 – 29th November 2012
