Holiday Author Open House
Let's try something new! Join us for a Holiday Author Open House - at Laura's house in Chandler. Come to sell books, or just visit and hang out! Besides selling books, we'll have music, refreshments, raffle prizes, door prizes, and more! Laura will be distributing postcards to all the houses in the neighborhood - and asks you also to share this event on your social media platforms, as well. If you want to sell books, please visit this link and fill out the application: Questions? Email [masked]

    What we're about

    Publishing a book has never been easier - but that doesn't mean there aren't a lot of steps involved in getting it right, especially if you want to create a book that sells. And regardless of your method of publishing, the job of marketing your book sits squarely on YOUR shoulders. Throughout the year, we'll discuss many avenues for marketing your books. If you're thinking of giving self-publishing a try, or you're a traditionally published author looking to sell more books, come join us!

    We typically meet the 2nd Saturday at 1 p.m. and the 4th Tuesday at 6:30 p.m., but sometimes this changes, so check the actual Meetup announcements. The format is a seminar with handouts - and guest speakers, as appropriate. Click here for access to all the previous handouts from 2017. (

    Once every other month we hold a networking only meeting where we just get together to schmooze, exchange tips and ideas, and get to know each other better.

    However, we do more than just get together for meetings. Some of our members contribute to our group blog (, we partner to create great events like the 12 Days of Christmas Book Giveaway ( and the Books Take You Higher Gala (, and we even had a booth at the 2017 Los Angeles Festival of Books. As the organizer of this Meetup, I am always looking for great opportunities for authors, so if you have any ideas, please feel free to share them with me!

    I look forward to seeing you at a Meetup soon!
