Do you have a desire to write your own novel, but don't quite know where to get started? Local author Emlyn Chand is the founder and president of Novel Publicity, a company that provides marketing, editing, and design services for all authors, regardless of their paths to publication.

During this session she will provide insight into how to hone your writing craft, make writing a priority, navigate self-publishing, identify and promote your author brand, and stand out in a crowded market.

Emlyn has published fiction across multiple genres and writes for youth to adult audiences. Emlyn’s first novel, Farsighted, won the prestigious Writer’s Digest Self-Published Novel of the Year award in 2012 for the YA category. The majority of her books have been published under her pseudonym Emlyn Chand, but she has recently started releasing books in her legal name, Melissa Storm.

Date with a Book

Saturday February 13, 2016: 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm -- Traverwood Branch: Program Room

This event is intended for grade 6 - adult

We'll set up a room similar to what you might expect at those "speed dating" events that are all the rage these days, but instead of people, you'll be dating books!

We'll have tables set up with popular books from each genre, and you'll have 4 minutes to "date" them before moving on to the next table. You never know - maybe that historical fiction novel you never would have picked up yourself will pique your interest, or perhaps a romance novel will shatter your preconceived notions about them.

Enjoy some light refreshments and meet the book of your dreams!
