Buzz Sessions

 

Time:  9:00am – 2:30pm

 

Location: Jamaica, Montego, & Antigua Meeting Rooms

 

Description: By asking our previous attending authors what they wanted to learn this year, we’ve streamlined the agenda to focus on what authors need and want to know most - how to engage with your readers.  The morning breakout session's agenda will focus on the latest trends and ideas that have worked for many up and coming authors – we will have six breakout sessions that cater to entry level and experienced level authors. Even though the sessions are focused from an author's point of view, these are open to all paid tickets holders, including Book Fanatic Readers.
