Welcome to the

Kauai Independent Authors and Publishers Association (KIAPA)

KIAPA is a new trade association for Kauai-based independent authors and publishers who wish to improve the professionalism of their book publishing.

Topics of interest include editorial (writing, editing, proofreading), design (cover and interior layouts and specifications),  printing (traditional and print-on-demand), ebooks (formats and production options), audiobooks (production options), distribution and sales (online, bookstores, specialty retail, bulk sales),  promotions (social media, publicity, reviews, interviews, signings, speeches. advertising), and common pitfalls (vanity presses, get-rich-quick schemes, newbie predators). The topics covered in our monthly meetings are limited only by the imagination and needs of KIAPA members.

We meet the third Tuesday of every month at 7 PM in the Kapaa area.
Meetings are free and held in a private home. SIGN UP BELOW FOR MEETING DETAILS.

Please join our secure mailing list to get notified of upcoming events. You are under no obligation to participate in KIAPA activities. We will not share your name or email address. Your privacy is protected by MailChimp.
