Download the press release for our Authors Go Public meetup HERE!

Suzanna Stinnett and Anne Hill, along with other leaders in our BABS membership, are cooking up a dynamic twelve months of BABS meetings in three counties: SF, Marin, and Sonoma.

Each meeting will have a focus on the authors of books as well as blogs under the umbrella of "Authors Go Public." We have lots of interesting tools to share!

Get it on your calendar, and here's a sneak preview:

*Panel on efficient tools & platforms for publishing and blogging

*Five-minute Ignite-style speeches by BABS members

*How (and why) to get started with your own ebook series

*Opportunities to network with other members

*Highlighting all our BABS book authors with special Author photoshoot

*Collaborating for our mutual success with innovative, informed marketing

*What it means when AUTHORS GO PUBLIC

Have you published an ebook or print book? Be part of our Author Recognition photoshoot. Contact Suzanna at [masked] to get on the list for details about Author Recognition.

Would you like to be on the roster to speak? Our evening April 10th is full, but to get on the list for future speaking opportunities, contact Anne Hill at [masked].

Don't miss this important meeting in San Francisco! We have a new venue downtown, a short walk from BART, courtesy of our new sponsor, the huge social network known as "Tagged." 12 months of meetings will be announced 4-10. Stay tuned! Cheers, Suzanna Stinnett and Anne Hill

    I thought the ignite presentations went well. Writers need information on digital publishing so much that I think they are happy for any information.

    Thanks for putting on a terrific event. It was very helpful to me. Coming at web based publishing from the point of view of an older guy new to social media, it definitely increased my understanding of what it is about. If you are looking for subjects for future meetings, please consider a more detailed session on graphics in ebooks. Also of interest to me would be interactive books, apps and the differences (qualities) between apple and android platforms for making ebooks. I am an android user. I think that the potential for graphics in epubs is underestimated and underutilized.

    I want to let all of you know that Suzanna just uploaded my first three ebooks to Amazon, got me to sign up for Independent Authors Network, and is helping me launch a blog and twitter campaign. So she practices what she preaches!

    I am very interested in being more involved with this group as I need to be consistent with getting my blogs done weekly. I would also like to include video. I would like accountability partners, as well. I am also interested in both the photo shoot and 5mn presentation. Would like to know more details. I am an Amazon best selling author, "Girl From the Hood Gone Good" recently published with Bush Street Press.
