    No! Perhaps you have to have made lots of money to be included! Do tell.

    Little bit far for me. You will have to give us a thorough run down of the night's events!

    Was it just a meet n greet? Or were there presentations or anything?

    I was invited to the Manchester one but wasn't able to attend as it was it the evening on the wrong side of the hill.

    Any helpful advice after attending?

    It was more a meet and greet type thing. I met a few other sellers and the TES team. I mentioned all the things that don't work quite right on the site.

    It was interesting meeting other sellers but not really a learning experience. Sorry.

    Thanks @Charleei for that blog post.

    We've recently posted a blog post containing a video of some of the authors' interviews done on the event nights. There are some great tips and advice for both potential and existing authors - so worth the watch (https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/blog/tes-authors-advice-tips-and-views-camera).

    Do check out the blog regularly as we publish tips and suggestions for authors. It's definitely the place to start for guidance.

    If there is anything specific you would like to know just email us (authors@tes.com).

    Happy publishing!

    Awww nice videos! In my head my voice doesn't sound like a chipmunk on speed! I am sure it is only on camera I sound like that.... Right? :)
