Website Launch: SYB Workshop Series
P.O.P. Editorial Services is launching a new website for the Sell Your Book workshop series!
Yep, P.O.P. is now offering two workshops to help authors find success: “Sell Your Book!” and “Produce That Book!”
I know, that’s a lot of exclamation points, but this is exciting stuff. And that’s why I decided the best thing to do is to dedicate a whole website to it.
I’ve written a lot about the original SYB workshop, so I’ll let you read the website or previous posts if you want to know more about that. This new one, however, is sure to be just as great. “Produce That Book!” covers the book production process from manuscript to bound book. For my editor friends, this is old hat. But for new authors, being able to navigate the publishing world and anticipate what will be required of them as they work to publish their books can be invaluable.
The most exciting feature of the workshop is the two-page sample edit from each author’s manuscript. Authors will get a feel for the editing process and learn firsthand what they need to do when they review a manuscript. This is a huge learning experience and will give these authors a leg up as well as added confidence as they navigate the publishing world.
It’s been so much fun putting the website together. It required a number of skills I don’t use on a daily basis, and I enjoyed the challenge. I wrote the text, chose the photos, and laid out the pages. Then I did what authors are told to do every day: revise, revise, revise. Finally, it’s time for the unveiling.
So, follow this link (www.sellyourbookworkshop.com) and check it out. Tell me what you think. And of course, if you know someone who’s interested, refer them to me. I’m always happy to talk to new and aspiring authors!
Mark your calendar: “Produce That Book!” workshop, Saturday, June 25, 2011, from 9 a.m. to noon, at Stone Spiral Coffee and Curios, St. Louis, MO. Register before June 18, 2011, to reserve your seat! Limit 8 people.
