Big Event


First, the official bits:

LPI celebrates a great summer of reading with the End of Summer Blog Event. Monday through Friday, August 24 – 28, we’ll feature author and editor profiles on the LPI Blog. Many author profiles will include giveaways, so please come visit for your chance to get to know Lyrical Press and win prizes.

We’ll round out the week with two live blogcasts:

Saturday, August 29, 6 – 9PM Central Time: Author Chat

Many, many LPI authors will be joining in the fray while Editor in Chief Emma Wayne Porter announces giveaway winners and hands out even more free goodies. Readers are invited to ask questions, hang out, and get to know the people behind all those stories.

Sunday, August 30, 6 – 9PM Central Time: Editor Chat

During this live blogcast, the LPI editorial staff gets its day in the hotseat. Readers are invited to give their opinions on what kind of stories they want to read. Authors are invited to ask questions about submission guidelines, and maybe even pitch an idea or two. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to speak directly to publishing staff, and be heard!


And now for the unofficial bits:

Both blogcasts will be held right on the LPI Blog, and we’re expecting a lot of author traffic. All the free ebook winners accumulated in the author profiles will be announced during the blogcasts, though people won’t have to be present to win. We’re often so all-business at LPI, I’m really looking forward to getting everyone together to just hang out and have some fun in real time.

Sunday’s chat with the editors will be a free-for-all. Authors, if you’re shopping for a publisher, here’s your chance to talk directly to LPI staff about how things work in-house, what all the acquiring editors are looking for, maybe some talk about how digital publishing differs from print.

Readers, this chat will be great for telling us what type of stories you like to see, your shopping preferences, and basically anything you want to talk about. Editors so rarely get to speak directly with readers, I think it’ll be a great opportunity for both sides.

Hope to see you there!
