What we're about

We're a support network for Houston independent authors to socialize and gain insights into the business and marketing aspects of indie publishing. We're not focused on any one genre or way to write, and we welcome indie, trad, and hybrid authors at any stage of their career.

Though our focus is primarily social, our monthly meetup will include an education portion with professional speakers (marketers, editors, book designers, other authors with strategy insights, etc.).

Writers Lunch: A History of Book Bans with AP Hawkins

Online event

What exactly is a book ban?

Powerful people have been trying to ban books for as long as books have existed. But, why? How? And in the modern era, where people have more access to books than ever before, what does banning a book actually mean?
Join us May 26th on Writers Lunch as we answer these questions and more. We’ll discuss the history of book bans up to and including bans of the modern era, reasons a book might be banned, famous banned books, and why it’s important to support books that have been “banned”.
