Are you interested in participating in the Red Carpet Sessions and submitting a 90-second video talk about your book?

This means you've never spoken about this AAE or Unhackable Press-branded book at an Igniting Souls Conference (unless you are an Author Elite Awards finalist, too). It also means that your AAE or Unhackable Press-branded book is available on Amazon.

Bookstore Guidelines

  • You may not collect email addresses from bookstore customers, as transactions will happen through ISC Bookstore, Amazon.com and/or BarnesandNoble.com. The purpose of the bookstore is making your book available, not list building.
  • We love to promote all authors. If you are an AAE author selling multiple AAE-branded books, please complete this form for EACH of your books. Additional books listed will incur a $5 fee per additional book or version. 
  • You agree not to pitch and promote your book to your “table,” any other networking “table time,” or other conference attendees. We have discovered that effective selling is effective serving. By being a helpful and engaged table mate and attendee, you will naturally earn respect and influence. AAE authors commit to show up filled up and focus on giving, not taking. There will be times Kary asks everyone to hold up their books, so be sure to have it handy.
  • You can, of course, have your banner behind you while you are on camera if you are virtual but banners are not allowed at conference.
