9 Lessons for Authors from the Author Shark Tank

9 Lessons for Authors  from the Author Shark Tank

This past week, I had the pleasure to, once again, put together the annual AuthorU Extravaganza. Three unbelievable days that made a lot of promises to attendees … and over-delivered. One of the events is the Author Shark Tank, a first-day event that invites selected attendees to pitch to AuthorU’s publishing pros. The pros want to help and indeed they did.

AuthorU Extravaganza Shark Tank Participant Launches Book!

 

Over 200 people attended the book launch for AuthorU member Nancy Geise’s Auschwitz 34207: The Joe Rubinstein Story based on the life of Holocaust survivor, Joe Rubinstein.
