Ever wish you could ask a senior editor in an established (and
amazing!) publishing house a question without revealing what you
don’t know? Do you long for access to sought-after insiders without
having to “perform”? Has there been a particular aspect of the
writing, proposing, or platform-building process that’s bewildered
or paralyzed you, kept you up at night, and separated you from your
goal? Then this one’s for you.
This is not so much a “webinar” as it is a pitch session without
Here’s how it will work. Brooke will first briefly share the top five things she feels it's critical that YOU, the author, know – including:
*what makes an ideal author in today’s publishing climate, from
an editor’s perspective
*the difference between an indie publisher and a Big House and the pros and cons of each right now
*whether or not there is such a thing as being too persistent
*the difference between pre-publicity ( a no-no) and building your platform (an absolute must!)
She’ll then turn it over and open the floor. Deborah will moderate. Come with questions and please don’t be shy. There is no question too great, no question too small.
