In August 2011, B Alan Bourgeois, who is an author and was a publisher at the time, realized the value of as well as the struggle of marketing books. Through the process to better understand the dynamics of marketing books, he created the Texas Association of Authors (TxAuthors). His one goal has remained the same through the growth of the organization: Helping authors to better learn how to market and sell their books.
By combining creative minds that help widen the world of wonder with those that seek to learn and to enjoy a richer life, we are providing opportunities for readers to enhance their libraries and their lives. We do not promote books that preach hate, but instead, we promote books that offer possibilities.
