The Washington DC Write to Publish Group is unlike most writers’ groups (which focus on critiquing each other’s work). Instead this group is dedicated to the "business side" of writing and works to educate authors (and would be authors) on what to expect when taking a finished manuscript and making it available for sale.

The group is currently run by Robin Sullivan, business manager of Michael J. Sullivan (bestselling author of  11 released books: The Riyria Revelations (6) , The Riyria Chronicles (3), Legends of the First Empire (1), and Hollow World). Michael also has 6 finished novels releasing soon: (Age of Swords (Summer 2017) The Disappearance of Winter's Daughter (Winter 2017), Age of War (Spring 2018), Age of Legends (Fall 2018), Age of Wonder (Spring 2019), Age of Empire (Fall of 2019) 

Robin is a publishing veteran and has "done it all" when it comes to releasing books. Some highlights include:

    • Obtaining 4 six-figure and one seven-figure contract

    • 3 contracts with 2 of the big-five (Hachette Book Group & Penguin Random House)

    • Self-publishing 7 of her husband's novels and selling more than 70,000 copies

    • Releasing 2 books through small presses

    • Running a small press which earned multiple authors six-figure paychecks

    • Marketing Michael's books to exceed  1,00,000 English copies sold

    • Negotiation one of the few "print only" deals since the rise of ebooks

    • Negotiating audio deals with publishers, audio producers, and Audible Studios

    • More than 60 foreign language translations

    • Managing multiple agents

    • Running two of the top-earning fiction Kickstarters (#3 globally & #8 in US generating more than $90,000 & $30,000 respectively)

    • Writing articles for Writer's Digest, Digital Book World, and Publishing Perspectives

    • Presenting Seminars for Writer's Digest and various Writer's Conferences
