Indie Author Day has gone virtual!

We know this year may look a bit different with in-person events being canceled left and right. Thankfully, Indie Author Day is set up to help support digital programming as well with an abundance of educational videos, workshops, and beyond. Your library can still be a part of this day even if it’s not in person! Check out our virtual event guide to help plan your day of events.

As a bonus for this year, we’re hosting a few virtual sessions throughout the day so your community can join in on the fun! Here’s what you can expect:

  • An interview with our 2020 Indie Author of the Year, Jacqui Castle
  • Announcement of the 2020 Indie Author Project Winners
  • YA Fiction Author Panel
  • Adult Fiction Author Panel

All events will be free and available to anyone hosting an Indie Author Day. Stay tuned for a full schedule and how to register. These sessions will also be available in our archive following the events.
