Contracts! And Agents! And Networking ... Oh My!
I spent 20 years in the business world before I jumped into the publishing world. My experience was crucial in my relatively quick success in getting an agent, an editor, and getting a publishing contract. I did this all in under 3 years — yes, part of that's due to the writing I presented--but it was also do to my knowledge of business. Those are the things I want to teach you.
The business side of writing isn't scary — but you do need an understanding of it. And in this course we'll start from the very basics, and by the end of it, you'll have a strong understanding of the business side of publishing.
And one of the crucial mind sets of successful authors is embracing the fact that you have to think and act like a small business.
Because you are.
By the end of this course, you'll have a strong understanding of the following:
