GET PUBLISHED!

So you want to write a book and have no idea how the business of publishing works? Have you written a book and need to make a decision about publishing? Have you tried everything and haven’t received a publishing offer? The business of books has changed drastically over the last few years and it continues to evolve. In this workshop you will learn:

  • The four publishing choices available and how they each operate

  • Learn the pros and cons of each of the choices

  • How to figure out which publishing path is best for you and your book

  • How to write a professional and winning proposal, query and a log line

  • How to find your agent

  • What is a tribe, what is a platform and do you need them

  • Join us for a productive workshop and a little fun.
