Authors Meet Up

Whether you’re a self-help guru, a political biographer, a craft expert, or are writing the next great, American novel, you’ve been (or are going) through the rigorous experience of birthing a book. In fact, being an author is one of the only professional experiences and accomplishments that puts you in a realm with people of all professional walks of life, which is in and of itself, an opportunity to tap into one heckuva hive mind!

The publishing industry is ever-changing during this digital age and so are the demands on authors to not only write their commissioned work, but also act as spokespeople, marketers, and publicists. Come join DIY expert, broadcast personality and best-selling author Vickie Howell, along with fellow authors in all genres, to share tips & tricks for getting through the writing process, and ways to keep your book feeling fresh and current in the crucial social media-savvy world.

Authors and aspiring authors welcome!
