First, I (your BCW Pres, Kat) need to apologize for completely dropping the ball in August. Travel in July and August kept me away and very busy (and a bit brain-fried) and I just plain forgot to post reminders about the meeting. I know Debora Coty did a wonderful job leading the meeting and presenting — because she always does! — so a GIANT THANK YOU goes out to her!
And this month, I am back. Not only to remind you about the meeting, but to present on The Paths to Publishing.
Are you wondering how a writer becomes a published author? What does it take? Confused by all the lingo? Curious about the difference between traditional and self-publishing? Large press and small press? And for crying out loud, what does it mean to be a hybrid author?
I’m going to answer all those questions and give you the lowdown on what types of publishing are right for different kinds of authors so you can figure out which path (or paths?) you are best suited for.
Join us at our usual place and time:
We will meet on the fourth Thursday of the month.
This month’s meeting is September 28th.
We meet in Room 305 of the Family Center at:
St. Andrews Methodist Church
3315 Bryan Road
Brandon, FL 33511
