Author Solutions, LLC, the world’s leading provider of supported self-publishing services, announced Wednesday that Keith Ogorek, Author Solutions’ senior vice president of marketing, will speak about the entertainment industry’s interest in self-published works in a presentation titled, “Why Hollywood Wants Your Self-Published Book Now…and Why They Don’t,” February 27 at The Digital Author & Indie Publishing Conference presented by West Coast Writers Conferences (WCWC).

At the public event, for which no admission will be charged, Ogorek will speak about an emerging synergy between self-published authors—a prolific source of original content—and television and film producers who are feverishly searching for fresh ideas. This trend has come to light as Author Solutions has forged Hollywood partnerships and created events to help authors and producers connect. These efforts have led to several self-published authors securing shopping agreements and options.

“Now more than ever, producers, managers, directors and even studios are looking more closely and intentionally at self published titles,” Ogorek commented, “In fact, I have noticed a significant change in the past year in terms of how many entertainment industry people are calling us, wanting to attend our events and get access to our author’s books.”

Those interested in attending the talk are encouraged to reserve a spot early at, as the 5 p.m. PST event at the Los Angeles Valley College Campus Center is expected to fill up quickly.

Earlier that day, Ogorek will present the conference’s lunchtime keynote address, “Six Tips to Fulfill Your Resolutions to Become a Published Author,” from 1–2 p.m. PST. The self-published author and industry thought leader will share simple tips to help would-be authors navigate their journeys from writing a manuscript to ultimately holding the first copies of their completed books. The keynote is open only to registered conference attendees.

The Digital Author & Indie Publishing Conference runs from 1 p.m. PST, Friday, February 26, through midday Sunday, February 28, with all events taking place on the campus of the Los Angeles Valley College in Van Nuys, California. The entire conference schedule and registration information is available on the WCWC website at
