Friday, August 1st:
Your Roadmap to the Non-fiction Book Writing Process
Do you know about book graveyards where editors at publishing houses bury the books that don't ever see the light of publication? As an aspiring non-fiction author, you need to be forewarned about these types of pitfalls. This workshop will serve as the roadmap-in-hand that you'll need to tread the traditional book-publishing road wisely. You'll walk out knowing what to expect from the glimmer of an idea all the way through to your book's publication date. This workshop will grant you the courage to control the things you can and the wisdom to let go of the things you can't, so you can focus on writing the best book possible. Learn about the role of agents and editors, the non-fiction book publishing process, how to make the best choices for your book, and how to form win-win-win relationships with the publishing industry players on your book's team.
