Cut Down on the Publishing Learning Curve
If you have written a novel or a nonfiction book or just have an idea for one, how do you cut down the learning curve and get published?
There are a number of ways that I've learned but one of the most fruitful means is to get educated and connected to the marketplace through face-to-face contact at a writer's conference.
I've written about the details of why you should attend a writer's conference in this article. I've created a new free resource about publishing.
Next Monday, I'm going to be interviewing Rick Frishman who is one of the most knowledgeable publishing professionals that I know about why someone should attend a writer's conference. Rick Frishman is the founder of one of the largest PR Firms in the U.S. Planned Television Arts and now he's a publisher at Morgan James Publishing.
Also Rick is the creator and host of the popular writers conference Author 101 University, which will be held in late October in Las Vegas. I will also be attending this amazing event. As an acquisitions editor at Morgan James, I'm working with Rick.
Rick is going to be answering your questions about why a writer should attend a conference and more of the details about what happens at these amazing events. You can ask your question and sign up for the event. If you can't make that time, don't worry because it will be recorded and everyone who registers will receive the replay information. I hope you will ask your question—and if you don't have a question, go ahead and sign up. You can simply put “no question” in the question area.
Why sign up if you aren't going to attend?
