SMALL PRESS DAY IS COMING!
The UK and Ireland’s inaugural dedicated day of celebration of self-publishing, micropublishing and DIY Culture is nearly upon us. This week at Broken Frontier we’re breaking down events on the day region by region to give you handy bite-sized guides to the multitude of events scheduled on July 9th. Today we continue with the North of England and all the shop signings you can look forward to there on the big day.
We’ll be collating all our SPD event guides here over the next few days.
The Comic Book Store
The Macclesfield store will be hosting a signing with Futurequake Press, the team behind the long-running eponymous sci-fi anthology from 11am-3pm.

They will also be hosting a signing with Terry Wiley (Sleaze Castle, Verity Fair) on the day.
