Self-Publishing Book Expo


Following on the heels of its successful and timely debut in fall of 2009, The Self-Publishing Book Expo will return on Saturday, October 2nd for a second show to be held at the Sheraton NY Hotel & Towers in midtown Manhattan.

The goal of the Self-Publishing Book Expo is to simultaneously create an annual event designed to raise the profile of this segment of the industry as well as to highlight the services of companies founded with the purpose of helping authors navigate self-publication and marketing.

This year’s Expo has been expanded and updated and will feature some exciting new changes including:

  • Free admission to the general public. This means MORE exposure and book sales for authors exhibiting their books at the expo.
  • Panels and Seminars. Founders from leading companies like Smashwords, Fast Pencil, and Outskirts Press, among many others, will be presenting on a variety of topics and subjects. The full details are here.
  • Discounts and Pre-Registration.  Tickets for the panels and seminars will be available for purchase in advance of the show.
