Ep 4 - The London Book Fair

March 22, 2019

"The London Book Fair is the global marketplace for rights negotiation alongside the sale and distribution of content across print, audio, TV film and digital channels."

A book fair! Candyfloss and author signings and gazebos? Not quite.

In this episode we're doing something a little different. I'll be recounting my trip to the 2019 London Book Fair and recounting all translated-Chinese-fic discoveries I made and encounters I had. Without disclosing any career ending secrets of course. Jk I have none.
