Trinidadian Author Daniel Francis Creates An “Author Village” & First Caribbean Author Conference For Self Publishing Enthusiasts

Written by: Avalon Gomez

Daniel Francis, author and founder of the Caribbean-based self-publishing company ‘One Momentum Publishing’, has been making waves in the self-publishing and author community with his innovative approach to literature and his passion for providing other authors with the necessary resources to succeed in the industry.

Daniel’s Vision is to support, empower, and provide established and aspiring authors with the resources that were not so accessible when he started his journey.

Through his online ‘Author Village’ community, he has been able to create a supportive and nurturing environment for aspiring writers to thrive. The impact of his work extends beyond just publishing books; it’s about fostering a sense of community and empowerment among writers in the region.

Having already successfully written and self-published two books, Daniel’s knowledge and experience in the publishing industry are invaluable. His journey from writing his first book to establishing a self-publishing company reflects his dedication to helping others bring their stories to life. Through his author village, he has mentored aspiring writers, providing them with the tools and guidance needed to navigate the world of self-publishing.

The impact of his work in the community is profound, as he has not only created a platform for writers to share their voices but has also fostered a sense of belonging and support among them. His commitment to promoting diversity and inclusivity in literature is evident in the stories that emerge from his ‘Author Village’ and conference.

As the launch of his latest book approaches ( which will take place at the conference), his influence continues to grow, inspiring others to pursue their writing dreams and make their mark in the literary world. His dedication to empowering writers and fostering a sense of community is a testament to the transformative power of storytelling.

On April 23rd – World Book Day,  his company One Momentum Publishing will host a highly anticipated Author Conference from 4pm-7pm at The Central Bank Auditorium. This event is designed to help develop authors and provide them with the resources required to successfully self-publish in the Caribbean.

The Conference will start with an Author Village from 4-7pm , where over 40 authors will be showcasing, marketing, and selling their books, then 7-10 will be the insightful and engaging panel discussions and networking.
