WHEN AND WHERE IS THE CONFERENCE

On September 23 - 25 of 2021 at Hampton Inn & Suites 7 Hills Conference Center, the most phenomenal group of writers and authors, AKA literary artists and literary entertainers, will be gathered to display their dedication and commitment to the craft and business of writing and publishing by learning how to excel in their literary careers in a spirit of excellence.

 

Whether attending in-person (with a very limited number of attendees for the main sessions only) or online (Both main and breakout sessions will be virtual), once registered for the conference, you become an official #Pathfinder and a member of the Path To Publishing private Facebook community. In our community, we are not just writers writing, publishing, and selling books. We are literary architects building literary empires!

 

Path To Publishing doesn’t only want you to learn how to publish like a pro, turn your book into a business, and create multiple streams of income to sustain your business, but we want you to master it! With that being said, the conference now doubles as an MBA in Publishing 60-hour program. That means you don't leave with a collection of simple handouts distributed by presenters and instructors; your conference registration includes digital access to the course curriculum.

Whether you are a reader thinking about writing a book, a writer ready to get paid for writing, a self- published author, traditionally published author, Print on Demand author (Amazon/IngramSpark), an author published through a vanity press/publishing assistance company, or a hybrid author (a combination of any of the pre-mentioned), the Path To Publishing "Act Like an Author, Think Like a Business" 2021 Conference being held September 23-25, 2021 is for you!​

 

YOUR BOOK IS YOUR BUSINESS!

Regardless of which path to publication you have chosen or if you have literary representation, your book is YOUR business. So, this conference is for you no matter which path to publishing you decide to take.

If your publishing success is just as important to you as your writing success, then instead of going to yet another writing conference, don’t you think it’s time you attend a publishing conference?

If the business you build with your book to create multiple streams of income is just as important to you as book sales and royalties, then instead of going to another one of those “fun” conferences designed to give readers an experience with authors, don’t you think it’s time you attend a conference that can teach you how to make money as a writer and author outside of book sales and royalties, as well as learn how to publish a book that will give readers an experience within itself?

 

Are you ready to learn how to operate your literary business in thriving excellence and not mediocre struggle and lack?  If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then we’ll see you at the “Act Like an Author, Think Like a Business” 2021 Conference!

***COVID-19 Safety Statement, Measures and Procedures: Path To Publishing absolutely understands not feeling comfortable or being able to travel. Before making your final decision whether to attend in-person or virtually, we'd like to share with you the safety measures and procedures we have in place for this year's conference. In-person attendance is limited to only 50 persons so that we can continue to practice social distancing.  All registration bags will include masks, tissues (to sneeze into and dispose of immediately), hand sanitizer, and disinfectant wipes. The same materials will be available in the conference meeting space. Attendees, presenters, staff, and volunteers will receive safety procedures, recommendations, and tips that must be followed for the safety of everyone. All presenters, staff, and volunteers will also be wearing masks. Presenters will be permitted to remove masks during presentations, in which they will be six feet from attendees.  We have a designated staff member to enforce social distancing and safety procedures throughout the event. Attendees will have assigned seating, in which their spaces will be cleaned and disinfected after each conference day (supplies will be available for attendees to clean and disinfect at their leisure throughout the conference day). The only time masks should be removed is while eating, in which social distancing will be practiced and we'll be using disposable plates and utensils with individually prepared boxed lunches. We understand this is a new normal, so we will have signage throughout the conference space to remind everyone in attendance of the safety procedures. We understand that our safety precautions and procedures do not supersede any doctor's orders and/or recommendations, so each attendee is asked to make the best decision for their safety, health, and those of others. If you are not feeling well or are experiencing any systems of COVID-19, we ask you to stay home. We will be taking the temperature of each attendee. Anyone running a fever will be allowed to attend the conference virtually from their hotel room.***

BECAUSE THAT IS DEFINITELY THE RESULTS YOU ARE GOING TO GET!!!

What makes the ALAATLAB annual conference different from any other conference for writers and authors:

  • It's not a writing conference but, instead, a conference to teach you what to do with your writings, such as successfully publishing them, turning them into a business and making money with them.

  • We’re not geared toward just self-published authors or any single genre of authors. Our curriculum applies to any writer and author regardless of which path to publishing they choose or what type of genre they write. Our conference is even designed for the self-proclaimed non-writer, because we know you don't have to be a writer to be the author of your own story. There are resources available to help you write and publish your book, and you get those resources at this conference.

 

  • We don’t fill the conference space with vendors, presenters, sessions, and workshops with service providers whose ultimate goals it to get attendees to purchase their services and products. We’re all about attendees investing in themselves, in their books, and their book business.

 

  • We include in the cost of the registration fee lifetime digital access to all the curriculum taught in the conference main sessions. So, you walk away with more than a few sales brochures disguised as workshop handouts. You walk away with the literary blueprint!

 

  • Although on occasion some of our sanctioned events include workshops on the craft of writing, this conference is focused on the writing process (tools and resources to get your book written), the publishing process, turning your book into a business, and making money with your book and book business. We know that the publishing process is just as important as the writing of the book. As a matter of fact, publishing success is the ROI on the writing of the book. Whether you’ve written your book and are asking, “Now what?” or whether you’ve already published your book and are asking “Now what?”, ALAATLAB is your answer!   

  • This is NOT a networking event. At the Act Like an Author, Think Like a Business Conference, we do more than network. We create and build genuine relationships, partnerships, connections, collaborations, and even friendships. When Pathfinders show up, we know we are not just another attendee at a function, we are family. We find ways to NOT compete with one another, but to complement one another in our various endeavors based upon our individual lane of genius and skills. You befriend a #Pathfinder, and you have someone who is going to support you for life! 

  • What else do we have that most conferences don't? Attendee cancellation insurance!
