Local and Small Press Author Day!

Did you know that some of our bestselling books at Fountain are small press titles? 

Today we celebrate the underdog writers...the mavericks and the believers!  Come meet these brave scribe warriors who are putting themselves out there, sometimes at their own expense because they've got a story to tell.

Who is in their company?

According to Wikipedia, they've got some literary royalty in their ranks and some people who, while maybe not all that literary, made a boatload of money!  

From Wikipedia:

...well-known self-publishers include Adam Croft, Stephen Leather, Stephen Crane, E. E. Cummings, Deepak Chopra, Benjamin Franklin, Zane Grey, Pat Ingoldsby, Rudyard Kipling, D. H. Lawrence, Thomas Paine, Edgar Allan Poe, Ezra Pound, Carl Sandburg, George Bernard Shaw, Upton Sinclair, Gertrude Stein, Henry David Thoreau, Walt Whitman, and Mark Twain.[citation needed]

Full schedule of authors will be listed as soon as we have them.  Meanwhile, if you are a self-published or small press author, please contact owner Kelly Justice via our Facebook Page by messaging.  

Thanks! 

Participating Authors:

Snook - urban lit 1-2pm

Anne McAneny - mystery thriller 2-3pm

Elizabeth Corrigan - paranormal fiction - all day

Raymond Goode - multiple titles - all day

The authors may be staying longer and we may have more participants.  By all means, if you are a self-published or small press author, please check the criteria on our Facebook page on the event listing and we'd love to have you.  Last time we had 17 authors, would love to have a few more this time as well.  Thanks! Kelly
