Each year, Author Solutions and our imprints head to some of the biggest book fairs, trade shows and industry events in the nation. Our authors often have opportunities to participate in these events as well, which may include displaying their book in an onsite gallery or being the star of their own book signing.
Stop by Author Solutions’ booths at one of these events for a chance to meet our authors, discover new titles or learn more about how we help writers self-publish books. Visit our Facebook page to see photos of our authors at past events.
