How often have you thought of writing a book, your childhood memoirs, a how to guide, travel tips and articles, a self help manual, or publishing that collection of recipes from Grandma?
Answer…probably quite often. We all have. Some of us have even started but don’t know what to do next. And we all wonder if our works are good enough to get published.
Learn the basics of a realistic approach to writing, editing, and publishing your book in Workshop #1. (Jan 21st)Did you know that over 150,000 people in this country alone are attempting to write their first novel? That doesn’t include the cookbooks, memoirs, guides, children’s books, or articles. Thousands of manuscripts get sent to agents every year. And only a few hundred get published. Why? There are a variety of reasons and most of them have to do with how that writing is presented.
Gain insight, self publishing do’s and don’ts, print on demand services, ISBN’s and how to obtain one, copyrights, and more in Workshop #2. (Feb 4th)A.J. Greer is a published author who shares secrets she learned from publishing her first book to how and when to start the next book.
