-- Authors with questions about getting their books into print can get the answers they need in a consultation with editors Nancy and Biff Barnes from Stories To Tell. This program is offered free at booth A7 at the West Hollywood Book Fair on Sunday, September 30.
“You can even bring us your draft manuscript, finished or unfinished,”
says Barnes. “We’ll take a look, answer your questions, and help you get your book into print.”
The turbulent transformation in traditional book publishing brought on by Amazon and other online booksellers, the rapid increase in e-book sales, and the rise of self-publishing have left many authors confused and in need of advice as to what is best for their books.
“Creating a book is a fascinating, enjoyable project,” said Nancy Barnes, “when you know how to proceed. Our experienced editors can answer your questions, teach you what you need to know, and speed your book to completion.”
Stories To Tell, an author services firm founded by Nancy Barnes, provides manuscript evaluations, editing, book design and publishing consulting services. “We help authors to choose the best publishing strategy for their books, so that they don’t pay for services they don’t need,” said Barnes. “We also help to prepare manuscripts for submission to a publisher or agent. If the author is self-publishing, we help with every step – editing, design, and publishing.”
The Book Fair will feature over 200 authors and artists and 75 exhibitors. It runs from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. in West Hollywood Park and at the West Hollywood Library. Admission is free. Authors can meet with the editors at the Stories To Tell booth A-7.
