The California Writers Club, Sacramento Branch’s monthly Writers Network’s breakfast meeting for June will feature thriller author Amy Rogers discussing Publishing Choices in 2012: YOUR Path to Publication.
You’re a writer and you want your work to be published. Never before in history have you had so many choices about what to do next. What does it mean to be “published” in 2012? And which of the innumerable ways to earn or buy publication best suits your individual needs and aspirations?
Dr. Amy Rogers, author, critic, and educator, has been closely following developments in the book business over the past few years. She will discuss the myriad paths to publication available to writers today. Based on your personal goals and strengths, she will help you decide the best way to get your book in front of readers.
