In this age where new styles of publishing are emerging at rapid rates and social media has become an essential piece of marketing, it is important for the new author to know how to navigate these waters. In this panel, the speakers will offer insight into how to build a presence as an author and how to dialogue with audiences once a book has been published. In addition, they will discuss the role of the author in a technology-fueled world.

This event also celebrates the release of Miyuki by Veronica Bane and Spelled by Kate St. Clair. The authors will be signing artist editions of their novellas following the discussion. Novellas will be available for purchase for $12 each.
