Prepare to Publish - What Beginning authors need to know

Saturday, October 19, 2:30 p.m. at Moss Library in Hayesville, NC, three authors will join me on a panel discussion, Prepare to Publish. 

Kathryn Magendie, author of Secret Graces and other books, will represent the traditional manner of publishing. She has several books out. 
Maren O. Mitchell, author of a self-help book, Beat Chronic Pain; An Insider's Guide, will discuss her journey to publishing.
A former Writers Circle student, Nadine Justice, author of I'm a Coal Miner's Daughter, But I Cain't Sang, will talk about the next step she took after the last sentence of her memoir had been written.

The question I hear most from beginning and amateur writers is, "Now I have the manuscript completed, what next?"

We hope to bring to the public ideas about preparing for publication, what the author should be doing before the book has been written and what to do once he/she has the printed copy in hand. 

We will give out handouts with some places, links, etc. that will be helpful to our novice authors. 

This is a free event sponsored by Writers Circle Studio.
The library is located at 26 Anderson St. Hayesville. Call Mary Fonda, librarian at 829-389-8401 for directions. Call Glenda Beall 828-389-4441 for further information.

This sounds great. I hope Blanche and I will be able to attend. I'm sure we would learn a lot at this workshop.

I think we can all learn from these authors, Brenda. I hope you and Blanche will be there. Pass the word.
