$2,000-plus doorprize! Publishing package—ebook programming, book cover, print design and copy-editing—to go to lucky winning writer at DFWCon
RENO, Nev. - May 1, 2013 - PRLog -- Lucky Bat Books is giving away a publishing package worth more than $2,000, including copy-editing, ebook programming, print book design, and book cover at this year’s Dallas-Fort Worth Writers’ Conference, May 4 to 5 at the Hurst Conference Center, Hurst, Texas.

Publisher of New York Times bestselling author Gregory Benford and Grammy Award winner Janis Ian, as well as a host of authors in both fiction and non-fiction, Lucky Bat Books is a leader in publishing innovation. The company, embraced by both known and unknown authors, puts control of the business of writing into the hands of those who create the stories, the writers.

“We’re the change we wanted to see in the publishing world,” says Judith Harlan, co-owner of Lucky Bat Books (]. “We’re writers and we wanted a publishing company we’d like as writers, not just as owners. So, we started one.”

The $2,000-plus publishing package—the doorprize at the DFW Conference—takes a writer from finished manuscript to book in print, as well as in ereader format, adds Cindie Geddes, the other owner of Lucky Bat Books. Geddes leads the company as an innovator in ebook conversions, exploring the ebook reading experience, what makes it different from print and what it can add to the experience. She pushes limits.

At the annual Dallas-Fort Worth Writers’ Conference, writers at all stages meet with agents and editors, attend writing and marketing workshops, and network with others in the publishing world. They explore the entire realm of being a writer in today’s world. And that includes websites, marketing, pitching stories, knowing their genre, self-publishing, new variations on publishing (such as Lucky Bat Books) and traditional publishing.

The day can start as early as seven in the morning and run well into the evening, and it is a marathon of discussions and networking, says Lucky Bat Books Project Manager Jeff Posey, who is representing the company at the conference. Known on the floor as “the guy in the hat,” Posey is a fiction writer and top-notch publisher. He’s also a whole lot of fun.

Posey will be presenting the $2,000-plus publishing package to the lucky conference doorprize winner.

Lucky Bat Books will also be giving away an inspirational postcard, a keepsake offering writers a "wufu" - the five happinesses of health, wealth, long life, good luck and tranquility. Lucky Bat Books encourages writers to "Live the writer's life - Live the Wufu!"

Lucky Bat Books, founded in 2010, is a traditional publishing house with a revolutionary business model, putting writers in charge of the business of writing. For information, contact owners Judith Harlan and Cindie Geddes via email: Judith @ or Cindie @ or contact them through
