There’s a book in all of us.  Find out what it takes to go from writing your thoughts on paper to proposal, publisher and promotion. Let’s talk with the experts: successful authors in the self-help, children’s and fiction categories and savvy publishers who know what sells in the bookstores.

Should you go the traditional route and find an agent? How to get the attention of a publisher? What are e-books? When to consider self publishing? What are publishers looking for? How to keep on going and deal with rejection? What needs to be in a book proposal? How to choose a title?
