The first Indie Author Day at libraries is this Saturday, October 8, 2016.
Are you a self-published author who’s participating at a library? What do you have planned?
Whether you’re indie or not, involved with your local library’s celebration or not, you can still participate. There’s a live webcast that day at 2 p.m. Eastern featuring a panel discussion with agents, authors, and industry experts. To watch, click “Watch the live webcast” on the Indie Author Day site.
Planning for next year’s Indie Author Day
What can you do if your library isn’t participating this year? (Mine isn’t either.) Here are three things you can do now for next year:
- Visit your library in person this week and ask them to follow what others are doing this Saturday so they become more informed. They can get a list of participating libraries on the site’s “Where?” page.
- Offer to meet with your library to brainstorm ideas for an event next year. Be enthusiastic; help them understand how important their support is to local authors.
- Rally other local indie authors and start discussing a proposal you can submit next year for an event that will help give local self-published authors more well-deserved exposure.
