Meet Authors & Publishing Professionals: for Aspiring Writers & Avid Readers
Guest Speaker: Tom Jordan Topic: "Writing Out Loud: Turning Your Work Into An Audiobook" The world of audiobooks is exploding, especially in the self-published market. This month's speaker is a veteran narrator of more than a dozen audiobooks. We are fortunate to get an insider's look at turning a print book into an audiobook. Tom will discuss where to begin and how to do it. Amazon has some great audiobook tools and resources for self-publishers. Learn how it all works. Great for writers of all levels -- even if you do not have a finished book, you will want to stay on top of current industry trends. You can learn more about Tom at # # # # # Special Note: There are changes in store for 2019. Our group is shifting to a 2:00pm start time beginning with the January meetup. Admission: $5 for non-members
