2016 Author Shark Tank – AuthorU Extravaganza
Sep 15 @ 4:00 pm – 5:15 pm

Get ready for the AuthorU Extravaganza’s Hot Event …





SOLD OUT as of June 19, 2015
for the September 15, 2016 date

Contact and ask to be placed on Waiting List–there is a possibility on one more spot opening up.

There are FOUR HOT sessions will be available at the 2016 Extravaganza September 15-17, 2016 … only ONE Attendee can get his or her toe in the Author Shark Tank at a time. Our panel will listen for a few minutes to your pitch (hear/read that: LISTEN) and then decide IF and HOW they will help the author in the book and publishing quest. The Author Shark Tank will be held late Thursday afternoon, September 15th.

The Author Sharks like passion, persistence and excellence. They will proved incentives to writers and authors who demonstrate it in publishing and authoring through a variety of awards that pertain to their own expertise and product line.

What’s the value to you? It could be money; it could be time; it could be a product – as in the Author Shark has a product that he or she sells all day for $897 and it’s yours, free; it could be the joint venture creation of a product that features the author and his or her book—that is blasted to mega thousands to buy; it could be printing reduction; it could be a book cover; it could be a discount on a layout; it could be … What it could be will be solely dependent on YOU and YOUR PITCH to hook them and could be worth many thousands of dollars. Or if you bomb, you may only end up with a shark tooth! To enter the tank, there’s a fee.

Last year, participants came away with many thousands of dollars.

Author Shark Tank participants are identified on a first-come, first-serve basis. You will get pre-conference coaching from Judith Briles prior to entering the Tank.

Save the date – get it on your calendar. And if you want a guaranteed spot in the Author Shark Tank, swim forward and let us know!
