From a new assessment of author services by the Alliance of Independent Authors to an AuthorEarnings talk by Hugh Howey, a book cover chat with C.J. Lyons’ artist, an explanation of the SELF-e library project and more, BEA’s Author Hub is humming.
The Author Hub at BookExpo America (BEA) is the annual event’s first effort to follow its sister London Book Fair in creating a specific site on the trade-show floor for entrepreneurial authors. It operates this week in its inaugural iteration under the auspices of Saturday’s uPublishU Conference at BEA. (Some seats for uPublishU remain.)
Unlike the London edition of the concept — which functions as a sort of drop-in lounge with seminars and demonstrations — the BEA Author Hub is a working center in which authors have bought their memberships, either Basic or Premium.
This is the development headlined, as you’ll recall, by “indie bestsellers” Bella Andre,Hugh Howey, C.J. Lyons, H.M. Ward, and Barbara Freethy — who gets special congratulations for being told she has become the highest-selling ebook marketer on record with Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) program.
