    "At the SLPA monthly meetings you meet other people that share the same desire to produce a book and share ideas. Along with the friendships that are formed, members help one another through their knowledge and experience of navigating the world of self-publishing. I liken this to a circle of knowledge that turns and shares with all who become a part of it. Learning from others is quite inspiring! Through the SLPA community, I specifically learned marketing and promotions, networking, and social media use. I could not have done this without invaluable experiences through the SLPA." —Jana Manville, author of Art Sparks, A creative adventure to inspire young artists
