A Debut Novelist's Rocky Road to Publication
Discouraged about your publishing prospects? Don't be! I queried 110 agents and 15 small presses before receiving an offer from The Permanent Press, a publisher specializing in literary fiction. I will share tips I learned the hard way about approaching agents and negotiating a contract with a publisher.
Audience: aspiring writers and authors
- My novel and reviews
- Lecture for a Canadian writing center

Lectures can be customized for length and audience interests.
I am happy to assist with marketing and promotion of lectures using my social media contacts, web-site, and traditional PR outreach.
