WHEN: January 23, 2016 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
COST: Free

Join three Austin indie authors as they read selections from their novels and discuss how they made the leap to indie publishing.

· Kate Baray: reading from Spirelli Paranormal Investigations (urban fantasy)
· M.G. Herron: reading from The Auriga Project (sci-fi thriller)
· Jackie Dana: reading from By Moonrise (historical fantasy)

This event is organized by Write It Already, a local meet-up that encourages people to write—and finish what they start. There will be light refreshments and books by all three authors for sale at the event. 

Kate Baray writes urban and paranormal fantasy, frequently with a romantic twist. She writes and lives in Austin, Texas with her pack of pointers and a bloodhound. Kate has worked as an attorney, a manager, a tractor sales person, and a dog trainer, but writing is her passion. When she’s not writing, she volunteers with a search and rescue team, sweeps up hairy dust bunnies, and watches British mysteries.

Matthew Gilbert Herron writes science fiction thriller stories. His first novel, The Auriga Project, was published in 2015. Matt has earned his bread as a river guide, pita roller, and digital project manager. These days, apart from writing fiction, he makes a living as a content strategist consulting with tech startups and creative agencies across the United States. When he’s not bending words to his will, Matt organizes Indie Publishing Austin, a local Meetup for writers and authors. He also likes to climb mountains, throw a frisbee for his Boxer mutt, Elsa, and travel to expand his mind. He graduated from McMaster University in 2009 with a Bachelor of the Arts in English Literature. Now he lives in Austin.

Jackie Dana is an author, freelance copywriter, herbalist and occasional troublemaker living in Austin, TX. In addition to writing, Jackie also is a passionate supporter of other writers and indie publishers. Currently she is the organizer of the author conference BrainstormATX (to be held June 18th, 2016 in Austin) as well as the ongoing Write It Already! meetup.
