Eric writes Christian fiction and talked about his experience publishing his first book last September.

Lee participated in “Meet the Author” day at the Abbeville County Library. She had a very pleasant experience and thinks that we should try something similar at the Greenwood County Library. Prudence from Greenwood Country Library said this might be possible in March 2017.

Connie talked about her self-publishing experience. One of the drawbacks was that the finished book had tiny size 9 font that was not evident until after printing.

Roy talked about creating audiobooks. He said that packages are available for purchase to create audiobooks, it is also possible to purchase the equipment and if you would like to do it yourself. He said that it is important to research which equipment that will be best for your needs.

Amaryllis shared 2 haiku poems.
