About

20Books Vegas 2022 is by far the biggest and best of the 20Books shows (we’ve had ten so far). It is the biggest show in the world focused on self-publishing although there is something for every author, traditional or indie.


Why would you come to Las Vegas in November to be with 2500 authors and publishers? Because we believe that everyone deserves a chance to succeed if they take the knowledge and experience and apply it to their author business. What if you could ask a question of someone who is where you want to be? What would that question be? Vegas gives you that opportunity.


With up to 20 authors making seven figures a year and hundreds making a full-time living, there will be something for everyone. Be warned, no one is going to carry you and make you an overnight sensation. You have to do that for yourself by applying what over 100 guest speakers have to offer. Are you ready to excel, reap the rewards of your good work? Then take control of your author career.


There is no other conference like 20Books Vegas. This show is predicated on the principle of giving back. It is run without any profit. We run this show because philanthropy is a part of our lives. We make our money off our fiction. We don’t need to make it from other authors. So we don’t. We get our reward when we see others 


We have our Live Events YouTube Channel so you can see the types of presentations we have made along with our daily material. Please follow the 20Booksto50k(R) Live Events channel for a great source of information on all things publishing.

20Books Vegas 2022 Facebook Group

If you are signing up to be an in-person attendee, then you’ll want to join this group – www.facebook.com/groups/392039465912377

Make sure you answer the questions otherwise you may not be let in. Most sessions will be live-streamed. Those will be in the Vegas group. www.facebook.com/groups/392039465912377 And they’ll be recorded into that group, too, so you can watch them anytime. We’ll cut them over to YouTube at a later time. 

Map of the conference rooms: 

Friday, November 18th from 10AM to 4PM in the Grand Ballroom, Bally’s (right on the Strip, Las Vegas). Free to participate for attendees (until all tables are filled). Must be an attendee to get a table. It is free for all readers and fans to attend! Invite them early so they can make their travel plans.


This is an opportunity to meet your fans and sign their copies of your books. You can also sell books if you want, although we encourage limited inventory because of the expense and space constraints (and also centralized billing due to Vegas sales tax issues).


We will have over 300 authors in one place at one time, all of them inviting their fans.


Authors can sell books directly, encourage their fans to buy copies ahead of time and bring them to be signed, get a bookplate signed and affix it to their book after they return from the show, or pick up a free bookmark or something that you might be giving away. And sometimes, it’s nice to just chat with the fans and strengthen your brand.


We expect to draw thousands of fans to this event.
