    "At the SLPA monthly meetings you meet other people that share the same desire to produce a book and share ideas. Along with the friendships that are formed, members help one another through their knowledge and experience of navigating the world of self-publishing. I liken this to a circle of knowledge that turns and shares with all who become a part of it. Learning from others is quite inspiring! Through the SLPA community, I specifically learned marketing and promotions, networking, and social media use. I could not have done this without invaluable experiences through the SLPA." —Jana Manville, author of Art Sparks, A creative adventure to inspire young artists

    “Thank you, SLPA! I learned so much from you all—officers, members, and visitors— and I deeply appreciate your support. Thanks for helping me create, fund, publish, launch, and promote my first book and my author website. The SLPA was invaluable to me!” –Cindy Peyser Safronoff, author of Crossing Swords: Mary Baker Eddy vs. Victoria Claflin Woodhull and the Battle for the Soul of Marriage, winner of 10 book awards.
