Published Author and Editor
“There lurks, perhaps, in every human heart,” wrote Samuel Johnson, “a desire of distinction, which inclines every man to hope, and then to believe, that nature has given himself something peculiar to himself.”
What better distinction on display than in a book? Maryellen Burns will guide a conversation on how to write, edit, design, publish, and market a book in 12 months, and why it is important to every writer, regardless of genre. She is the author or editor of multiple books through traditional publishers and her own Indie press including Lost Restaurants of Sacramento and Their Recipes; Extracts – Mostly True Stories; and Whip Up a Cookbook. She has been a ghost writer, set up author tours and west coast promotions for Ten Speed Press, Simon and Schuster, Chronicle and Prima Publishing. She also teaches and produces books with the I Street Press and more recently facilitated a series for Indie Writers and Publishers for the Renaissance Society at CSUS and Morning Coffee Press in Midtown.
The California Writers Club–Sacramento Branch Networking Meeting is held the first Friday of every month at Coco’s Restaurant, 7887 Madison Avenue, Citrus Heights, at the corner of Madison and Sunrise, starting at 9 a.m. Meetings are free. Attendees pay for their own breakfast.
