Launch your book at Waterstones Piccadilly

We hold regular events at Waterstones flagship bookstore in Piccadilly, the largest bookshop in Europe. These Author Showcase events take place midweek between 6.30pm and 9pm. The evening is focused solely on recognising authors who are either launching their book, or are promoting an existing title. Wine and soft drinks are served and books are on sale with Waterstones.  Door tickets for everyone are £10 per head and are available through Eventbrite.  Unless otherwise specified, all the events take place in the lower ground floor events area.

PLEASE NOTE – the book launch events are separate and in addition to our regular AuthorCraft Academy training events in the Institute of Directors, 116 Pall Mall, which take place on the fourth Tuesday of the month, every month except August and December.


There are no AuthorCraft events during August or December. The office remains open during that period.
