Forgot to mention. I'm doing another online workshop this week. It will be VERY fast (five days) and is meant to give writers all the information they need to get them started in the publishing industry.
Here's the class plan:
Monday: Overview of the industry. A quick historical perspective. What you need to know about genres. How your personality plays into your approach to getting published.
Tuesday: Publishers. Who the major players are and how they think.
Wednesday: Agents. What they do, and how to go about getting one.
Thursday: Booksellers. Why Borders and Barnes & Noble are having such problems. What's going on over at Amazon.
Friday: A look at the major trends. How to increase your odds of getting published.
If you'd like to join us, register today here. Don't be scared off by all the pink if you're male or by the references to romance if you don't write romance. This is a macro class geared for an overview of publishing.
Come play with me [grin].
