Today’s authors are facing a plethora of changes in the publishing world. The question increasingly becomes -- how does an author get noticed, both by a publisher, and readers? And what kinds of considerations do we need to think about for success in the new book delivery systems growing worldwide?
In this workshop, we will explore the pros and cons of aiming at the traditional publishing route vs. the growing market for Independent publishing: print and eBook/online publications. We’ll also explore steps you can take, as an author, to both getting published and then creating successful PR for your book.
A recovering Fortune 500 Consultant, Ina Hillebrandt decided some years back to focus on writing. After her first foray into print, Pawprints, morphed into a literacy and love of animals program for children -- sparked by an Educators Workshop for the Jane Goodall Institute -- she branched out to work with adults on fiction, poetry, and memoirs, as a coach, editor and publisher. Her memoir work led to How To Write Your Memoirs…Fun Prompts to Make Writing…and Reading Your Stories a Pleasure!, which has been a staple for individuals and university teachers since its publication. Her first book, Pawprints, and one of the series of students’ writings, Stories From The Heart, v. 2, became best sellers on Amazon, and her most recent, You Are Who You Eat, won an award from The Book Publicists of Southern California, and is in the Billy Ireland Library & Museum at OSU university,
