Welcome to this Author Meet Up! Each month, we snag a successful author who can share thoughts on their books, writing, the publishing process, and helpful insights on their own creative journey. Plus, they're available to answer any questions you may have!
This is an excellent opportunity for all you authors or aspiring authors to learn from people who have made headway in the field. So grab your reading glasses and a beverage, and join us for an hour of discussion and fun!
