'Meet Our Local Authors' book mini-faire and book signing, Feb. 17
BVS Cultural Arts Presents
January 19, 2019
The Bear Valley Springs Cultural Arts Association is sponsoring a FREE event for the Bear Valley Springs and Greater Tehachapi area public: “Meet Our Local Authors, Book Mini-Faire and Book Signing”. As many writers learn, writing the book is one thing, getting it published is something else. A panel of published authors will share the success and pit-falls of choosing to find a publisher or self-publish. Topics addressed will include but not limited to: attracting a major publisher, learning about smaller, regional and specialty publishing houses and self-publishing through online services and local presses.
It often comes as a big surprise to learn that even a major publisher expects the author to promote their work. A whole new world smacks them in the face: Marketing. Q&A Breakout Chats with our local authors can address such topics as: Book tours, signings, fairs, websites, blogs, contests, clearing houses, and audio book and kindle options.
The Tehachapi literary community is quite robust. It’s a great time for not only the general public, but writers’ groups and book club members to become acquainted with our local writers and illustrators.
Suggestion: Come for the Valentine Brunch: 11 – 2 p.m. and stay for the program or, attend the event – and stay for dinner: 5 – 8 p.m.
All published local authors are invited to offer their books for signing and sale at our Book Mini-Faire. To participate, email Andi Hicks, BVS-CAA Program Chair at [email protected]
