Salon at Phillips' Mill - Self-Published Fiction

Discussion with Self-Published Authors

This is the third in our popular series of literary/artistic Salons at Phillips’ Mill. The theme is self-published fiction.

“Self-publishing has become an integral part of the publishing industry,” says John McDonnell, host of the series, “and this salon will showcase some of the amazing local authors who have embraced this new era of publishing. They will read selections from their work, and their books will be available for purchase. Additionally, there will be a panel discussion about the self-publishing experience, offering valuable insight and information to anyone interested in self-publishing their fiction.”

Featured authors include Raysa Santos from Ivyland (An Angel Amongst Us), Marc Dickerson from Yardley (Art Farm), James Betz from Princeton Junction (Ralston Heights), James Martin from Doylestown (Eggplant Emoji), Paige Gardner from Lansdale (Every Breath Alight), Patrick Lombardi from Lawrenceville (Junk Sale), John McDonnell from Doylestown (Rose of Skibbereen), Ashini Desai from North Wales (The Secrets We Keep), and Bob McCrillis from Doylestown (Puckerbrush).

There is limited space available, so those interested in attending are encouraged to sign up. This event is the perfect opportunity to meet local authors, discover new works of fiction, and learn more about the self-publishing process.

The Salons at Phillips’ Mill are a tribute to the great salons of Paris, London, and New York in the 19th century, providing a platform for creative individuals to share their ideas, talent, and work in a friendly atmosphere. To stimulate discussion, each salon will have a performance or reading, followed by snacks and mingling (bring your own food and drinks, alcoholic or otherwise, if you desire!).

Future salons are planned for storytelling, fiction, poetry, and more. Mark April 25 on your calendar and come out for another great evening at Phillips’ Mill.
