Book Publishing 101

Understanding The Book Business From Concept To Creation

Have you written a book? OR is there a book inside you waiting to come out?

Between work, family and social life, who has time to research how publishers actually make their decisions or to investigate self-publishing options? Where do you even start to look for an editor or an experienced graphic design artist for the cover and interior layout? What about marketing?


This is a one-day intensive workshop to learn the basics of the book business. Whether you are a first-time author or already have a manuscript finished, this workshop is for you. This is your chance to learn directly from the publisher the steps required to take your idea or finished manuscript into a successful book! If your goal is to be a published author, don't miss this opportunity.
