The Sandhills Community College Katharine L. Boyd Library will join with libraries across North Carolina on Saturday, October 8 to link members of the local writing community with each other and authors throughout the state.
As indie publishing continues to gain ground, many writers struggle to gain footing in the publishing world. By participating in Indie Day 2016, local authors will be able to meet and network with fellow members of the writing community.
This inaugural event of Indie Author Day 2016 will begin with an hour-long digital gathering at 2 pm which will link writers, agents and other industry leaders. Publishing industry specialists will offer inspiration, information and advice. This livestream will be held in 101 Boyd Library.
At 3 pm, local author Vivian Jacobson will discuss a new program, SELF-e, that enables independently published authors make their book available to a much wider audience.
Light refreshments will be served in the Wood Reading Room.
