IWG-ers at Indy Book Talk

IWG Members were representin' at this year's Indy Book Talk. IWG's own Debra A. Kemp was on a panel about publication in the afternoon. Debra did an amazing job talking about the struggles she endured to see her book into publication.  Fellow IWG-ers, Ellen Tevault, Sarah Gott and Kate Chaplin where there to cheer her on and spread the word of IWG. 

The Book Talk took
 place at Lawrence High School and had local celebrities, Andy Murphy, Dick Wolfsie,
 Mayor Paul Ricketts and Mayor Greg Ballard in attendance.

Presentations were given 
about all aspects of publication from publicity on the Internet to the "real deal" of a book publication timeline. Th
ere were great interviews and Q&A sessions with well-known and award winning writers, and "mall" featuring a freebie table, booksellers, jewelry sellers, info on Indy Reads and more. 

With a lunch sponsored by Olive Garden, it was a  full, fun
 time had by all. Wonderful to have an IWG-er in the brochure!! Way to go Debs!!
