If you plan to be in Northern Virginia in September then you should check out the second annual Fredericksburg Independent Book Festival:
In 2016, Indie Authors, Amazon Imprints, and Small to Medium Publishers accounted for 45% of ebook gross sales. More and more people are publishing their own books, and more and more will need a place to market their work.
That’s where the Fredericksburg Independent Book Festival comes in.
Our mission is to provide a venue for local authors, graphic novelists, publishers, book artists to market their work, and to foster an interest in reading, writing, and literature.
Entering into its second year, the Festival is set to grow, with space for over one hundred authors, publishers, artists, book arts businesses, food trucks, and more.
I missed last year's festival, but I will be there this year.
