Self-Published Authors Night

I think it’s wonderful that there are bookstores out there who support self-published authors. Lauren, the owner of The Reading Bug, had her first Self-Published Authors Night last July 9. I was lucky enough to be part of it.

Three other authors and myself, got to present and read our books to the crowd. Click here to view more photos from the event.

The Reading Bug is a bookstore mainly for children, so it was a delight to be able to showcase Sammy’s Books.

As authors, I believe it’s important to go out there and meet our readers—talk to them and engage with them. Participating in events like these really brings us closer to our audience. It’s also a good way to meet and support other authors.

  1. I love seeing these kinds of partnerships between book stores and indie authors. Despite the fact that people think indie authors are somehow contributing to the demise of print media, this post really highlights the fact that self-published authors and book sellers actually need to stick together and what beautiful things can happen when we do!

  3. I wish we had something like this nearby. I have done book signings at a local bookstore, and have a couple of books on consignment, but this would benefit several local authors, I’m sure.

    1. Hi Roger! It definitely helps to have events like these where different local authors get to showcase their books. Hope there are more out there. And if not, maybe we should create our own events. 🙂
