BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (PRWEB) September 19, 2011
Author Solutions, Inc. (ASI), the world leader in indie book publishing, announced Monday it will have a large presence at the 2011 AARP Life@50+ Convention, being held September 22-24 at the LA Convention Center in Los Angeles.
ASI will host 50 free book signings throughout the duration of the convention in booth 727, featuring leading indie authors from many genres and backgrounds. Convention attendees are invited to stop by, meet the authors and pick up free autographed copies of their books, as available.
“We’re pleased to bring these free indie author book signings back to AARP Life@50+ again this year,” said Keith Ogorek, ASI senior vice president of marketing. “These signings have always been very popular with convention attendees, and our authors really enjoy meeting and speaking with readers.”
In addition to the free book signings, ASI will display more than 300 indie books in its gallery in booth 733. Convention attendees can preview new indie titles and find information on ordering these titles directly from ASI. Genres range from cookbooks to novels to historical and business books.
For those who’ve ever dreamed of publishing a book, ASI publishing professionals will be on hand in booth 832 to share information about indie publishing. With more than 140,000 books in print, ASI’s publishing imprints have helped more than 100,000 authors bring their books to readers.
“Publishing a book is on a lot of people’s bucket lists,” Ogorek said. “Every year we meet with dozens of AARP attendees, and many end up finally publishing their books. It’s fulfilling to come back to this event every year and meet with authors, who’d inquired about publishing last year, and have over the course of the year fulfilled their publishing dreams.”
The 2011 edition of AARP Life@50+ runs from Thursday, September 22 through Saturday September 24 at the LA Convention Center. More information is available at http://www.aarp.org/about-aarp/events/national_event/.
