Send your book to the Beijing Book Fair

22 to 26 August

Exciting News:
This year at the Beijing book fair there will be a large Australian Combined stand highly promoted. There will be multiple Australian publishers all helping each other to promote their books: First time ever.

If you have a great book you can be part of this exciting event as Australian self publishing group and Inspiring Publishers promote all Australian authors to the world, regardless of where they publish.

ASPG have been going to international book fairs for ten years and have built a great rapport with many literary agents and publishers.

We are the only Australian self publisher who has a permanent agent on the ground in China promoting books all year round. This is available to any author who sends their book to the Beijing book fair, and is included in the cost.

Gold, best promotion, top spot on display stand $560
Silver costs $495.
Bronze costs $350
Catalogue entry only: $200.
Early bird special, $498 instead of $560, for Gold, but limited space so be quick.

Super special for the first 10 authors to book a Gold package.
We will make an individual promotional video of their book at the fair, which will be sent to the author. This is valued at $350, as we also list on YouTube, and our top rating websites for greater exposure.
