The Best-Priced Onsite Conference--Maybe Ever!

International Publisher Sponsors 

First Writers' Conference in Philadelphia

I just signed a contract with Bookbaby.com to present at their first-ever writers’ conference and I have to tell you, I have never seen a top-level conference like this offered at such a price.  That means I am thrilled to tell you about it not only because I am a firm believer in conferences, but also because, well . . . you know how frugal I am.

The Independent Writers Conference will be held in in the heart of Philadelphia November 3rd to 5th at the Sonesta hotel. Start saving the career-boosting pennies in your budget for this but also don't wait! The Early Bird special is only an unheard of $99 through May!

Bookbaby is going all out. There may even be a tour/social on Sunday after the last presentation! Talk about a fun networking opportunity. Early bird registration is available right now at https://sites.grenadine.co/sites/rps/en/bookbaby?utm_campaign=BO1709&utm_source=BBOff&utm_medium=Email

Learn more at #indieauthorscon and register at www.bookbaby.com/conference2017 
After you register you will get the code for our Sonesta Hotel group rate. ($189/night for November 3rd and 4th)
Here's what you can expect:

  • ·      Presentations from successful authors and industry leaders
  • ·      Over 20 workshops and panels focused on publishing and marketing your book
  • ·      Opportunities to connect with fellow writers and expand your writing network
  • ·      Discussions with real publishing experts ready to answer your questions
  • ·      Personal interaction with knowledgeable industry professionals
