Toronto Author Seminar – Friday August 3, 2018
* Have you ever dreamed of becoming a published author, but don’t know where to begin?
* Do you have a completed story and don’t know how to go about getting it published?
* Do you have a published book but are experiencing difficulties marketing and promoting your book?
If so, this seminar is for you!
I will walk you through the steps of becoming a published author, rather following the traditional route of using an agent and a major publishing house, or by becoming a self-published author. I will provide marketing and promotional tips for attracting your target audience.
PART 1: INTRODUCTION TO WRITING YOUR BOOK
PART 2: EDITING YOUR BOOK AND PREPARING TO PUBLISH
PART 3: PUBLISHING YOUR BOOK
PART 4: MARKETING & PROMOTING YOUR BOOK
