Become an Author!
Have you ever thought about writing a book? Maybe you have a book already written! (If this is you: good for you!) Did you know that BiblioTech offers resources to help you write, publish and distribute your book? We do! Our Writer's Corner page is just for the aspiring authors in Bexar County and is full of great resources and tools. For example, come to Indie Author Day, learn more writing skills on Lynda, then format and export your book in Pressbooks (there is a handy "How to Use Pressbooks" video below). Once you are happy with your amazing book, you can upload it to Self-E to enter it into our collection, and the collections of many other Texas libraries.
Our Indie Author Day celebration will be next Friday, October 12. Come join us from 1-4pm! We will have three featured authors, as well as crafts for the whole family. There are also lots of other author resources in San Antonio, including the San Antonio Writer's Guild and Gemini Ink.
According to the Alliance of Independent Authors, more and more people are choosing to publish independently for a variety of reasons. These include global readership and the lack of middlemen, such as publishers and agents.
However you publish your book, we love featuring local authors in our library! Let us know about your amazing accomplishment.
