Multiple challenges present today’s aspiring author in their quest for publication. What’s a platform? How can I write a book that attracts the attention of an agent, and when should I begin pitching? In this workshop, I will break down the publishing process into simple, manageable steps. Aspiring authors will come away from this workshop with goals they’ve created that will aid them in their journey and will potentially bring them to their publication destination.
Every novel holds the all-important first pages. But why are they so important and what can you do to make sure everything is as it should be before turning them (and the rest of your manuscript) in to your agent or editor? In this workshop, bestselling, multiple-award winning author, Eva Marie Everson, shows you what to look for, what to avoid, and how to spit-polish your work so that editors and agents say, “Yes!”
We’ve been given a gift. No matter where we live in the world, we can connect with like-minded thinkers, make new friends, and establish relationships. What authors of years past would have given for this opportunity!
However, social media is often used selfishly. If the goal is JUST to sell books, you’ll lose every time. Instead, social media used with the reader or audience in mind is not only more effective, but allows you to strategically get in front of your ideal customers, clients, and readers while building a strong platform.
In this workshop, we’ll cover the best practices for each of the five major social media platforms: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and LinkedIn so you can strengthen community with your audience and readers.
