The Four C’s of Successful Authors

Not all writing careers are created equal.

Why are some authors quickly catapulted to publishing success while other authors languish?

What are the four C’s and how can you make them work for you?

What are your writing challenges?

What is a book proposal and who needs one?

What is the difference between a non-fiction and a fiction book proposal?

In this workshop, we’ll learn the secrets of how to become a successful author.

We will also discuss cover letters, finding the right agent (or publisher) and how to sell your published books.
