Gerry Ward of the I Street Press
The October 19th luncheon will be an extended meeting to commemorate California Writers Week. The theme is: “Create. Celebrate. Community.”
Luncheon guest speaker will be Gerry Ward of I Street Press. He will discuss the process of creating books using the Sacramento Public Library’s Espresso book machine. He will also talk about the benefits of making I Street Press your publisher, including: providing an ISBN number and listing your book in Books in Print to make it available to bookstores nationwide.
Gerry holds a Masters degree in Library and Information Science from San Jose State University. He has worked for the public Library in Sacramento for over 24 years. It is often a source of frustration for authors who have published an ebook when people keep asking them for a standard paperback. Signings are not possible with an ebook because there’s nothing on which to sign, thus, promotional opportunities are limited. The I Street Press service broadens the author’s book promoting range and sales opportunities.
