At our September meeting the Author Enablers, Sam Barry and Kathi Kamen Goldmark, will share their entertaining lecture, Write That Book Already! The Tough Love You Need to Get Published Now. Based on their book of the same name, their lecture will walk participants through the publishing process from idea to bookshelf and beyond. Attendees will gain insight into the roles of various publishing professionals, including the publisher, editor, publicist, and agent, and Kathi and Sam will share a few tricks that just might help you get published. Writers of work in any genre and at any level of skill and experience are welcome.
