Ms. Healy - I have been a CAPA member since the Spring. My children's book, The Perfectly Imperfect Pumpkin, is currently available and I would not mind at all doing the Meet a Member section of The Authority. Thanks ever so much, Christina Cody
Hi, I am a new CT Author and would like to find out how to join CAPA.
Also, I'd love to visit your booth at the Big E. I'm guessing it is too late to participate.
Looking forward to getting to know you all.
I just joined this group and would love the opportunity to be featured in your "Meet A Member" column if that's still possible. I write contemporary romance.
You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Technical note for new CAPA Online Social Network Members:
Please note, that you must be a registered CAPA member to be featured in CAPA's Meet A Member column in The Authority. Please review the instructions and membership form at http://www.aboutcapa.com/member_sign-up_page.htm to become an official member of CAPA.
CAPA has a wide and varied membership and we would love to meet you offline as well! Check out http://www.aboutcapa.com/ for our meeting locations and times. I hope to see you soon.
Thanks for your enthusiasm!
CAPA Meet A Member Column Coordinator
If we are members, how do we apply to become a featured member?
Also, I have an exciting book launch - virtual book tour - this coming Tuesday.
Where would be the proper place on the site to list the event?
Consider yourself signed up! Since The Authority is a monthly publication, we are booked solid for a year, however, I will add you in for July 2012.
To announce great happenings, like your upcoming book launch, I would suggest posting it as a Brag. Peggy Gaffney started an online group for brags: http://authorsandpublishersct.ning.com/group/brags
Also remember to send a short blurb of your brag with a jpeg of your book, your author photo and a link to your website to Peggy Gaffney for inclusion in the August The Authority newsletter.
You can also setup an event from your page here and invite people. I haven't tried it, however, you should be able to invite everyone in the CAPA social network that way.
CAPA also has a Facebook page and you could invite folks through there.
Best of luck with your book launch!
