I’m so excited to have hosted so many truly great talents and unique voices this year, and I’m looking forward to amping up the awesome even more next year. Interested in participating as a speaker or sponsor of next year’s event? Sign up below and I’ll drop you a line when I start planning! <3 

Giveaway winners will be randomly chosen before the end of July and will be notified individually by email. Be sure you have davincikittie (at) gravetells (dot) com and sue (at) davincikittie (dot) com added to your contacts list or address book so you don’t miss a potential prize email!

Want to be part of next year’s event? Great! I’m looking for authors (indie and traditionally pubbed), publishers, and other publishing professionals who want to share their knowledge and expertise with new authors just beginning and growing their careers. I’m also looking for sponsors, so if you want to host a giveaway, you can sign up for that here too! Sign up below and I’ll email you once I start planning my 2018 event. <3

Want to thank everyone for such an informative and interesting event. Even though I’m only a reader, I really learned a lot and have so much more admiration for all the authors, especially what they have to go through to publish. I also hope they realize how much readers really appreciate when they give out “freebies” so we can read for ourselves if we like the authors style and the books they write. Bravo everyone!!
