Have you ever considered writing a craft book? Wondered about the ins and outs of getting a book deal? Been curious about the process of producing the manuscript and working with an editor?
On Monday, May 20, I'll be part of a panel discussion with several other craft book authors, and an editor at a major craft book publishing house, to talk about the process of writing craft books.
We'll be discussing how to come up with and pitch a book idea, whether you need an agent, what we wish we knew before we started, what kinds of books publishing houses are likely to acquire now, and what advice we'd give to aspiring authors about selling a book idea and working with a publisher successfully. And there will be time for questions, of course!
If you'll be in the Boston area that day, I'd love for you to join us!
The panelists will be:
Jennifer Urban-Brown, editor at Roost Books
The panel will be moderated by the amazing and inspiring Virginia Johnson, owner of Gather Here in Cambridge.
We'll have a signing afterwards with plenty of time to chat, too. I hope to see you there!
