On Wednesday, November 11th at 5:00 pm, BPL and Con-Tinual will premiere a special panel discussion on small presses and their potential to support and publish authors.

Small Presses are often touted as giving writers the best of both worlds–the creative freedom and direct influence on product of indie publishing, with the editing, cover design, and marketing support of traditional publishing. Is the small press route the right path to publishing for you? Join authors Samantha Bryant and Michele Berger and authors/small press owners John Hartness (Falstaff Books), Jason Graves (Prospective Press), and Rachel Brune (Crone Girls Press) to learn the ins and outs and ups and downs of small press life. BPL is pleased to partner with Con-Tinual: The Online Con that Never Ends to bring you this program, just in time for National Novel Writing Month!

Con-Tinual is an online community dedicated as a place to celebrate science fiction, fantasy, and romance in TV, film and books, without the barrier of distance.  Its moderators regularly create and post panel discussions and tutorial videos through its Facebook page.

Moderator Samantha Bryant is a middle school teacher by day and novelist by night and has published novels and short stories with a variety of small presses.  Her work, including the Menopausal Superheroes series, features speculative fiction with a feminist bent.
