Guest Speaker: JD Barker
Kicking off our Read Local/Eat Local event will be best-selling author J.D. Barker! J.D. successfully published his debut novel as an indie and sold enough copies to land on the radar of the traditional publishers in a BIG way including seven-figure advances, two feature films, and a television program. He’ll open his toolbox and explain exactly what he did to make it happen. All are welcome to attend this not-to-be-missed session, especially any aspiring author or the seasoned veteran trying to find their place in today’s publishing world. J.B. Barker is an international bestselling American author whose work has been broadly described as suspense thrillers, often incorporating elements of horror, crime, mystery, science fiction, and the supernatural.
