International Best-Selling Authors Featured At Daytona's Pen To Paper Literary Symposium

"The Pen To Paper Literary Symposium, which has grown to a two-day event, provides a wealth of information on the art of writing and the business of managing an independent press," says Valerie Coleman, symposium coordinator. "Attendees gain insight from mainstream and self-published authors, editors, agents and an attorney."

Dan Poynter is noted as the leading authority on self-publishing. Having authored over 100 books and 600 magazine articles, he travels the world teaching authors how to sell more books. Vickie Stringer, founder of Triple Crown Publications, used her literary savvy to create the urban-fiction genre. She now has titles printed in several languages including Spanish and Japanese.

The Author Showcase will be held on Friday, October 6, 2006 at 7:30 p.m. Admission to this portion of the event is free. Aspiring writers, book clubs, avid readers and the public are invited to enjoy hors d'oeuvres, an on-site bookstore, a licensed massage therapist, desserts by My Sweet Cakes and music by Tonya Baker.
