Mountain of Authors

This guide provides information about a free annual community program for local authors and writers.

Author Showcase - 2018

Each year, we invite over 30 authors to be part of the Mountain of Author's Author Showcase.  This is a great opportunity for published authors to gain exposure in the Pikes Peak region.  Showcase authors have an opportunity to:

  • Market and promote their works to attendees as well as other authors.
  • Meet and network with other writers and writing groups.
  • Attended panel discussions.
  • Listen to the keynote speech.
  • Sell and sign books!!  Bring your own inventory and the Friends of the Library will handle all the book sales (the Friends of the Library charges a small commission for this service).

Authors are invited to apply starting mid-February (check back here for dates and details).  Selected authors should be notified by the end of February.  Due to space considerations, we regrettably cannot accept every author that applies.  We are always looking for new authors and diverse genres!  Other than book sale commissions, there is no fee to be a Showcase Author.
