     It is presently a 'bear' for me to navigate and understand, but am encouraged by the knowledge and professionalism of the instructors, and the other authors generous contributions on marketing tidbits.

     This is a terrific group of people and Justin did a good job. I value the opportunity to sit with other like-minded Indie authors as we work together to understand the complexities of getting your work out there and read.

  • Publishing and Book Promotion

     The wealth of information, encouragement, knowledge shared at each meeting is invaluable. It doesn't matter if you're just starting to write, never published, can't decide which direction to choose when publishing, you'll learn a lot about steps to take and how to present /promote your book in the best, professional way. Make your book the best it can be and come learn and share with this group !

     Awesome! Great information. If you don't learn something from attending, then you're not paying attention. 

    David M. on May 7, 2017.

  • Publishing and Book Promotion

     If you are an author looking to self-publish your books, this group is a very valuable resource. Every meeting I have attended has given me a lot of information and I learn new things about publishing and marketing every time. The group of people is also super supportive of each other.

     Highlight of Cinnamon Roost Farm event: meeting other authors. Laura O does a beyond-fabulous job of organizing these kinds of activities, and it always is lovely to meet authors. From them, I gleaned ideas that I can use in other venues and forms of book promotion.

  • Publishing and Book Promotion

     Laura is an amazing resource of information and is a very giving person. She provides so many opportunities to the group with book-signing events, trips to major book fairs, and the administrator of a hugely popular blog. She's an excellent editor as well. If you want to maximize your book-selling endeavors, this is a must group for all aspiring and perspiring authors!

  • Publishing and Book Promotion

     As the newest member, I can not yet review the strength of this group, from first hand experience -- but with the first program being, "Making a VIDEO BOOK TRAILER, even if you're not a video whiz" - the topic could not be nearer and dearer to my heart. 

    Jim B. on May 20, 2016.

  • Publishing and Book Promotion

     We enjoyed learning so much about web design at the meet up last night. It was a lot of valuable information. Thank you Dana and Laura

    Ibeh (pronounced Ebay) A. on Feb 20, 2016.

  • Publishing and Book Promotion

     This is a very friendly group of authors in varying degrees of publishing readiness. I being at the bottom of the the spectrum was very relieved that there were supportive people there who could share in my floundering stage and who could encourage me to dig in again. This group rates a 10+! 

    Pat R. on Feb 3, 2016.

  • Publishing and Book Promotion

     I am hoping to move my book on to the next step...professional editing and publishing. 

    Kathleen A H. on Dec 5, 2015.

  • Publishing and Book Promotion

     This is a great, diverse group on a singular mission: publication success! It's great to meet so many local authors in one place and the free exchange of ideas and information is awesome!

  • Publishing and Book Promotion

     Super! I would come to every meeting if I didn't live so far to the west side of the valley. I enjoy the topics, and I especially love the bits of technical information I learn from the others at the meeting.

  • Publishing and Book Promotion

     When I was close to publishing (or so I thought) my first book, I joined the Publishing and Book Promotion meetup group. I attended several meetings and participated with the group booth at the Tucson Festival of Books event and am so grateful for the kind support that was provided to me. Now that my book has been published, there is so much more to learn and do. I am grateful to Laura Orsini for starting and maintaining this meetup group!

  • Publishing and Book Promotion

     I have really been struggling with the promotion aspects of this book publishing game. I have a degree in marketing and lots of ideas, but I am on a fixed disability income. Most of my ideas take money that I do not have. This group is very helpful showing me how to accomplish promotion on a meager budget. 

    Lori B. on Nov 8, 2014.
