Author Resources Right at Your Fingertips 

Psst... wanna know where you can find great writing and publishing info for free? Join the St. Louis Publishers Association (SLPA) on Wednesday, March 8 to discover websites bursting with advice and information that will help you learn how to write, publish, and sell books like a professional. We’ll give you handouts and show you free online goodies with the answers to your questions — even questions you don’t know to ask. We’ll also tell you about local writing groups and where to find writing classes in St. Louis, highlight our favorite useful books, and share our advice on starting your own company (whether as a writer or a publisher).

This SLPA meeting will include a walkthrough of online and local resources and will feature a panel discussion with local publishing professionals:

Her company, Nehmen-Kodner, provides book design, branding, and marketing for self-published authors, start-ups, and established companies. Peggy helps authors through the design process to produce customized book covers and interiors. Clients benefit from her keen sense of typography, printing, and production.

Andrew Doty began publishing poetry at the age of 16, then earned a degree in creative writing before pursuing a career as an editor. He provides comprehensive editorial services and consulting to authors and publishers, with a portfolio that includes bestselling books and celebrity authors, in addition to providing copyediting, proofreading, and publication production management of all kinds through his company, Editwright.


Linda Austin became an advocate for life writing and memoir after writing and publishing her mother’s memoir, Cherry Blossoms in Twilight, of growing up in Japan around WWII. She has since written and published Poems That Come to Mind, about caregiving, and a Korean War veteran’s memoir, Battlefield Doc. She encourages life writing via her website http://moonbridgebooks.com and advises on indie-publishing and social media marketing.

Kevin Ericson, the SLPA’s website manager, will moderate the meeting and reveal the many resources to be found on the SLPA website.
