On Saturday morning, March 8, the executive director of the Independent Book Publishers Association, Angela Bole, will conduct a wide-ranging presentation that will include plenty of audience participation through an innovative feature called “Ask Angela.”
This is a rare opportunity to hear from a national expert in the publishing field and have your specific concerns addressed, and the Colorado Authors’ League is excited and proud to bring it to you. http://coloradoauthors.org/events/special-presentation-by-ibpa-executive-director-angela-bole-ebooks-and-everything-digital-plus-a-publishing-industry-overview-382014/
IBPA is the largest publishing trade association in the United States with more than 3,000 members – both independent publishers and self-published authors.
Here’s how “Ask Angela” will work: As each participant in the program arrives, they’ll be given a card on which to write the question or questions they want Angela to answer and the topics they’d like her to address. Those cards will be given to Angela, and she’ll read answer or discuss them. “I’m very interested in talking about what everyone is interested in hearing,” she says.
(Note: If you’d like to submit your question/topic in advance, email it to dennydressman, and he’ll forward it to Angela.)
“Ask Angela” will be the second half of the program. The first half will include:
* A deeper look at e-books
* An overview of the publishing industry
* A discussion of your publishing and marketing options
* An update on Amazon
The Saturday morning session will be 8 a.m. to noon, March 8, at Englewood Middle School, 303 W. Chenango Ave., in Englewood. Chenango Avenue is just north of Belleview, and the school is a few blocks west from South Broadway.
There’s plenty of free parking.
