Benefits of Membership

  Membership in the Book Publicists of Southern California is a wonderful resource for authors, publicists and others:
  • Attend BPSC meetings six times a year at reduced (member) prices. Hear from inspiring and motivational authors, publishers, media, publicists and others. (Visit our Events page.)

  • Consult with and learn from best-selling authors, who are among the BPSC members and are available for networking and professional consultation.
