A new team is in town.
Celebrity Authors on the Beach is a group of talented writers dedicated to helping others live an all-American dream: publish a book. The inaugural conference was presented in November at the News-Journal Center in Daytona Beach. Twelve authors each took a turn on the stage to share their experiences in writing, publishing and promoting books. An attentive audience took notes, asked questions and left the event with both tried-and-true tips and a game plan on how to act on their dreams.
The Celebrity Team and its members are available to speak at group meetings and area businesses.
Team members are:
Bill Cummins, author, speaker and conference director
