Indie Author Day is a day dedicated to self-published authors. On this day, libraries across North America, including the Dallas Public Library, are hosting events designed to bring local writing communities together to participate in author panels, workshops, presentations and information sessions.

11 a.m.: Join DFW authors Russell Connor, Harry Hall, and Pamela Skjolsvik for an informative panel on Standing Out in the Crowd. Panelists will discuss how you as a self-published author can make your book stand out, get an appealing cover, secure testimonials, and market your books on social media.

1 p.m.: Participating libraries will join a digital gathering that explains SELF-e, a service that helps authors format their e-books and possibly get their work into local libraries. The webinar will also feature a Q&A with writers, agents and industry leaders that will bring together the larger indie community.

2 p.m.: Sci-Fi/Fantasy author Martha Wells, urban fantasy/paranormal romance writer Tricia Skinner, and first-time author Bridges McCall will discuss their creative process, their journey to being published, and their experience with SELF-e.

The event is hosted by the Dallas Public Library in local partnership with DFW Writers Workshop.
