We had the pleasure of participating in Indie Author Day yesterday, October 9th. Reno’s Indie Author Day took place at the Spanish Springs Library and featured local author, Mark Maynard, as well as local publisher, LeRue Press, local editors, Pypeline Editing, and many other indie authors.
Each participant had their own table situated in the middle of the library. The setup allowed visitors to easily see each table and communicate with each author/business. What made this event stand out from many other book events was the Q&A with a panel of experts. At book signings and readings, you may ask the author questions about their experience, but it was refreshing to hear what a group of people thought about the same questions. Everyone had a different experience and approach and it helpful to hear all those ideas in one setting.
It proved to be a great event to bring the local writing community together. Local writers had a forum to be able to network with other authors and experts in the field, as well as get their questions answered.
We hope this will be an annual event and look forward to participating next year!
