November 15 Meeting: We were pleased that Bend author Ginger Dehlinger presented her program about self-publishing. She walked us through the world of self-publishing, sharing details based on her own experiences. Ginger’s first novel Brute Heart was self-published and her second novel is in the works. Thank you, Ginger, for your informative and interesting presentation on this timely topic!
