Hot off the presses. Blurb is throwing down an indie author book fest. And soon. Here is the link. I will be there as well, doing whatever it is that I’m supposed to do. Speaking probably. And loitering around the Blurb compound. I plan on shooting a few portraits and recording a few interviews. Come talk to me, or just come and say hello.
Blurb Indie Book Fest
Sunday, September 21, 2014 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM (PDT)
On September 21st, we will be hosting the first ever Blurb Book Fest for indie authors at the Makeshift Society in Brooklyn.
Start the day with a relaxed author breakfast followed by a series of top-notch workshops, speakers and panels. Up for discussion are topics ranging from publishing in installments, navigating the world of book reviews, building blocks of a successful book launch, and much more.
In the afternoon we will host an indie author fair where we invite our current Blurb authors to showcase and sell their books. It’s a chance to meet current and future fans—plus other authors and artists who are self-publishing with Blurb.
Please let us know how you’d like to participate…There’s no need to RSVP just to attend the Marketplace—it’s open to the public—but you will let us know if you want to sell. Authors are required to supply their own Blurb books to sell.
1) Breakfast + Author Workshop + Indie Book Fair (and I have a Blurb book to sell)
2) Breakfast + Author Workshop only
3) Indie Book Fair (and I have a Blurb book to sell)
We’ll review applications for the marketplace on a first come first serve basis, as space is limited. You’ll need to bring at least 5 copies of your book to sell.
