Jim Hinks of Comma Press will be introducing his app LitNav. From your fingertips you can read and travel the world via their collection of short stories. Designed with commuters in mind, these bite-sized gems will take you on the alternative route. Liverpool to Venice to Zurich, where do you want to go next?

Liverpool's Virtual Book Fair is delighted to introduce Beth Reekles to the stage to discuss her self-published success and the impact that self-published authors are having on the way we read now.
