As you know, the term "self-publishing" is widely used by authors and book industry people these days. And it's no wonder, as the number of independent success stories continues to grow.

Even Publishers Weekly, the longstanding book business trade magazine, now puts out
PW Select, a monthly update on what's happening in the self-publishing world.

But those four little letters - SELF - can be misleading. Writing, producing and marketing a book independently does NOT mean you do it alone. Most successful indie authors will tell you you shouldn't even try.

That's why you need to attend this special August event, where you'll get to meet and talk with the people who can help you publish your own book.

You'll get to know graphic designers, editors, printers, book coaches, and more. Ask questions and get a feel for who they are and how they work. This is your opportunity to explore potential team members you'll use to build your book publishing business.

We're teaming up with the St. Louis Writers Guild for this special event so we can reach even more people who have a message or story they want to share with the world.

Unlike our normal meetings, admission to this Vendors and Service Providers Marketplace is FREE.

Also, drop your business card into the raffle bowl that night for a chance to win one of three $15 gift cards from St. Louis Bread Company (Panera). Author and SLPA board member Tim Hill will be your emcee for the evening.

Doors open at 6:30 PM for networking. The business meeting begins at 7:00 PM. The Author Service Providers Marketplace continues till 8:30 PM or so with networking and raffle drawings throughout the event.
