Control Your Writing Career and Set Yourself Free
-- 2 workshops with Jess Lourey
and we'll be celebrating the New England chapter's 25th anniversary!
Morning Session: Indie Publishing for New and Traditionally-published Authors
Afternoon Session: Marketing Your Book for Indie-published and Hybrid Authors
Whether you’re in the middle of penning your first manuscript, you have a short story, novella, or novel you couldn't sell through traditional channels, or your backlist rights have reverted, learning to successfully indie publish (publish outside traditional channels) and market your work can set you free.
The morning session will focus on the nuts and bolts of indie publishing: process, format, sales channels, and timeline.
The afternoon workshop covers marketing.
The sessions can be attended independent of one another.
If you have one, bring a laptop and a short description of the short story, novella, or book (back-cover copy length) you’d like to focus on.
About Our Guest Presenter:
Jessica Lourey (rhymes with "dowry") writes about secrets. She is the bestselling Agatha, Anthony, and Lefty-nominated author of the critically-acclaimed Mira James mysteries, which have earned multiple starred reviews from Library Journal and Booklist, the latter calling her writing "a splendid mix of humor and suspense." Jess also writes nonfiction, edge-of-your-seat YA adventure, magical realism, and feminist thrillers. She is a tenured professor of creative writing and sociology. When not teaching, reading, or dorking out with her family in Minneapolis, you can find her dreaming of her next story.
