Ask Me Anything Author Panel

So you want to write a book, but have a million questions? Like is it better to self-publish or submit to traditional publishers? What are the pros and cons of each?  Is my job done when the book is published? What do agents want? What do editors want? What do readers want? What is best for me, the author?

Get all your questions asked and answered at the AMA-ASK ME ANYTHING AUTHOR PANEL. A self-published author, a debut author and a multi-published author will discuss the joys and hazards, thrills and pitfalls, surprises and disappointments, and what else you can expect along the way to becoming a published author. You won’t want to miss this informative panel presentation!  Bring paper and pen so you can take notes. Book signing follows the Q & A.
