 Publish Your Own Book!

Do you have a great idea for a book and want to see it in print or as an eBook? Join our panel of self-published authors and learn how fun and easy it can be to create your own book.

The Book-In-Hand Roadshowsessions are designed to familiarize writers with self-publishing. You'll hear four industry insiders share real life experiences, provide valuable resources, and discuss eBooks and the print-on-demand (POD) process.

"10 Steps to Successful Self-Publishing" Make your book a reality with tips from our island speaker - Pamela Varma Brown, editor of the newly released, "Kauai Stories: Life on the Garden Island told by Kauai’s People."

"The Visual Perspective" Graphic designer Vanessa Perez has created dozens of book covers and knows how to zero in on the perfect image that will attract your target reader and make your cover memorable.

"Reaching Your Audience" Sommelier and author Roxanne Langer talks about identifying new audiences and selling books in bulk.
BONUS: Roxanne's bringing a sample of Thanksgiving wine to taste (age  21+).

THE LAUNCH: "Crafting Your Book Event" Ingrid Lundquist, author of the award-winning "Results-Driven Event Planning: Using Marketing Tools to Boost Your Bottom Line" provides direction on creating an outstanding book party.

Join us for the flavor of the islands and a taste of the vine. Seating is limited so reserve your spot today by signing up on-line (see information to the right in the yellow box). At this special pre-holiday session you'll receive a copy of "The 60 Minute Wine MBA" and tips from the pro about pairing wine for your Thanksgiving meal.
The Book-In-Hand Roadshowsessions provide the opportunity to meet and hear self-publishing insiders in the fields of editing, photography, graphic design, marketing, and project management. Every session has a different focus and different mix of speakers.
