SEPT 9: J.D. Barker

Please join City Books for an evening with J.D. Barker on Sat., Sept. 9, 2017 from 7-9 PM.

Barker event

In 2014, J.D. Barker indie-published his first novel, Forsaken, and through perseverance, ingenuity, and creative marketing, took the title to the top of the bestseller lists around the world. His second novel, The Fourth Monkey, sold to traditional publishers for advances in excess of $1 million. His third novel, a prequel to Dracula, co-authored with Dacre Stoker and based on Bram Stoker’s original notes, sold in late June 2017 at auction to a Big 5 publisher. Two feature films and a network television program are in the works based on his novels. A native of Illinois, J.D. splits his time between Pittsburgh and Englewood, Florida.

In addition to reading from his books, J.D. will be talking about his experience with self-publication including:

• Agent or no agent?
• Freelance editors
• Query letters
• What is co-op?

A book signing will follow the event.
