Self-published books and authors will finally have the spotlight at the first annual Self-Publishing Book Expo (SPBE) in New York City. Featuring an appearance by our very own Tanya Hall, the SPBE will be a great learning and networking opportunity if you live near New York City or have been thinking of taking a trip to the Big Apple.
Open to the public, the SPBE will offer authors a unique opportunity to exhibit and sell their books. Authors and attendees will also have a chance to get expert advice on a wide variety of topics from publishing experts and industry veterans, through a series of panels, lectures and discussions scheduled throughout the day. In addition to the general public, editors, publishers, literary agents, and members of the media are expected to attend the event, all looking for hidden gems and great stories that may otherwise be under their radar.
The SPBE will be held in New York City on Saturday, November 7, 2009 from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Sheraton New York Hotel & Towers. To register, or for more information, visit www.selfpubbookexpo.com.
