NZIBF needs financial assistance on Boosted

We only have 16 days left to achieve our funding goal of $7,600. Did you know we don't receive any funding if our funding goal isn't met? All donations are returned.

So check out our three inspiring videos we're put together to raise awareness of the festival. You'll find the videos on our facebook page, on YouTube, and on our new website:

You are welcome to share this newsletter or parts of it,  with your family, friends and contacts.

NZIBF - Introduction
It's harder for Kiwi writers to be traditionally published in New Zealand but it's an exciting time for independent and self-publishing. This festival brings together a huge number of writers, books and readers together in a way not possible at books shops or online.
NZIBF Boosted - Reader
For Readers. Why should I come to the Festival?
As a reader you have the amazing opportunity to chat with passionate Kiwi authors from all over New Zealand. You can purchase their print and ebooks covering a range of genres and age groups. Many of the books at the festival are not available in mainstream bookstores.
For Writers. Why should I come to the Festival?
Is your manuscript hiding in a drawer? Has your story been rejected by traditional publishers? Don't know what to do next? This festival is the opportunity to get the answers on how to independently or self-publish your own ebook or print book. Let boutique literary exhibitors share their knowledge and skills to bring your dream to life.
Thank you Nielsen Book Services for sponsoring the festival's Seminar Room.

'My Ladder Legacy'- June blog on Wordpress

I’m me. I’m a multi-hued, multi-faceted person who builds legacy ladders. It’s a ladder that helps people by encouraging them to try new or different pathways to success. I’m a chatterbox who can’t help but share inspiration and enthusiasm, where others so often hold back. Block walls stop ideas dead in their tracks. But, block walls are also a perfect place to perch a ladder so you can keep climbing until you see the view of success. That’s me – the ladder climber.
