Authors in the Park has a new newspaper and shines the light on authors.

Did you know that Authors in the Park has its very own digital newspaper? It comes out twice daily and is chock full of randomly selected tweets from AIP participating authors (past, present, and future), and literary news from places such as YALSA, Publishers Weekly, and more! Check it out here http://paper.li/JLBCreatives/1360113515

They also feature authors on their Facebook page:

Amy I. Long was raised in Sanford, Florida. She is working toward a bachelor’s degree in molecular biology and hopes to apply that knowledge to the field of disease control. She loves watching sci-fi movies, reading historic romance novels, studying history, medical botany, and astronomy. The inspiration for this book was Boadicea (Boudica or Boudicca), a queen of a Celtic tribe who led an uprising against the occupying forces of the Roman Empire. “I especially like strong, outspoken women of earlier days but little known in modern times. Perhaps that is what sparked my enthusiasm to write about my own queen.”
