UBVE is a fan made magazine style online show. You’ll find News, events coverage, publishing tips for writers and publisher visits all in the main show. We have focussed our efforts on the pilot and if it’s a success we will be aiming to produce quarterly show. In addition there will be short specials that come up when there are opportunities to show you something we think is too good to miss but outside the regular format and in due course we would love to bring more bloggers in on the process.
You can watch the first video here.
