The format will consist of an intensive workshop led by established writers of fiction and non-fiction books. Beyond the workshop there will be panel discussions on writing, self-publishing, traditional publishing, selling your book and author readings.

In an effort to meet the new demand for online and self-publishing, the Sangria Summit will also address digital-focused writing for e-publication on the various mobile devices.

New York Times Best Seller author Bob Mayer will lead the workshop. Mayer, a West Point graduate, served in the Infantry and Special Forces commanding an A-Team and as a Special Forces operations officer, and was an instructor at Fort Bragg.

She is also the founder of the authors group San Diego Writing Women and its blog,

Nate Brookshire and Marius Tecoanta

Also speaking will be Army Captains Nate Brookshire and Marius Teconanta. Their fiction book “Hidden Wounds, A Soldiers Burden” brings insight from a World War II perspective of what we now term PTSD. Additional authors will be announced once they have confirmed their attendance.

Several book agents and editors will be on hand to critique works of aspiring authors, as well. There will be sufficient time to meet other authors and spend time talking about writing during the two-day conference.

The Conference will begin with an informal reception at the Denver Press Club from 6 to 9 p.m., Sept. 12, 2012. The workshop, which includes lunch, will be at the Denver Marriott City Center from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sept. 13-14, 2012. Two special dinner gatherings with the authors will be at the Denver Press Club.

Just as there was an explosion of successful writers after World War II who wrote about the war, there are thousands of stories to be told by a new crop of writers after 10 years of fighting the War on Terror, said Conference Director, Isaac Cubillos. Today there are many avenues available along with the traditional hard-cover book publishers.

Cubillos is the author of Military Reporters Stylebook and Reference Guide. He has covered the military as a reporter and editor for the past 20 years. He is the editor of Lanterloon Military Writers Magazine (, a Victor Ian LLC publication.

We hope to help in the development of a new generation of writers who could be the next Tom Clancy (“Hunt for Red October”), William Manchester (“Portrait of a President,” “Good-bye Darkness: A Memoir of the Pacific War”) or Chris Kyle (“American Sniper”), Cubillos said.

The Sangria Summit is designed for writers of military stories fiction, non-fiction, current affairs, historical, biographical, and memoirs. This is an ideal conference for active-duty military personnel, veterans, and civilians interested in this genre. It is a chance to meet like-minded people, and rub elbows with accomplished authors.

Victor Ian LLC is a military media and gaming company located in Aurora, Colo. The company is devoted to supporting writers of military works through its online publications and conferences.

The Conference will be at the Marriott Denver City Center, In Denver. A special group rate has been arranged with the hotel.

Leading Indie Publisher Bancroft Press Announces New Emphasis on Memoirs in 2012 and 2013

Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) March 30, 2012

On March 30, 2012, Bruce Bortz, founder and publisher of leading independent publishing house Bancroft Press, announced that his company would shift its focus from fiction, the companys primary (though not exclusive) emphasis for more than a decade, to memoir.

The change will begin on June 12, when Bancroft, located in Baltimore, MD, will launch Marcy Millers Rebooting in Beverly Hills: A Wise and Wild Path for Navigating the Dating World, a dating over 50 memoir tagged as Sex and the City for the next generation.

Its funny, its wise, and its uniquely insightful about real life, says Bortz of Rebooting in Beverly Hills. Its exactly what we look for in a good memoir.

In a way, says Bortz, the change began last August, with the release of Jackie O: On the Couch: Inside the Mind and Life of Jackie Kennedy Onassis, a fictional autobiography of the former first lady. Although not actually written by Onassisin fact, it was written by accomplished psychoanalyst Dr. Alma Bondit told a true story from a first-person perspective, and became one of Bancrofts most successful titles in years.

Our slogan here at Bancroft has always been Books that Enlighten, says Bortz. Jackie O did that, and so do our upcoming memoirs.

Aside from Rebooting in Beverly Hills, these new titles include Gerald Felix Warburgs Dispatches from the Eastern Front, an insider and lobbyists view of Washington, D.C. politics; an untitled memoir from Kevin Kelly about a former football coach who turned out to be a mob enforcer; Phyllis Hains Diamond in the Dark, a Southern girls true story of growing up in the midst of child and spousal abuse, then becoming a national champion of the abused; and in October of this year, Walking Home with Baba, Rohini Ralbys spiritual account of her time spent with Swami Muktananda.

But Bortz emphasizes that this new emphasis on memoir does not mean Bancroft is moving away from fiction. In fact, Bancrofts next title, Elizabeth Leikness The Understory, due out June 1, is a work of humorous literary fiction. We will continue to publish excellent fiction, Bortz says. But well publish terrific memoirs as well.

In a sense, this is Bancroft Press returning to its roots. Nonfiction was the predominant focus of Bancroft Press for nearly its first decade of operation.

Fiction and memoir have a lot in common, says Bortz, especially first-person fiction, which Ive always found to be extremely intimate. They both tell great stories. Really, thats what were all about.
