Joining host Judith Briles is Marilyn Van Derbur, winner of Writers Digest Best Self-Published Book Award, author of the international bestseller Miss America By Day that revealed her betrayal and sexual assault at the age of 5 until she was 18. Self-publishing at 65 after turning down NY publishers, it was her first book, and only book, that is used in universities internationally, and has changed the lives of millions. A film on her life, An Incest Survivor’s Odyssey won an Emmy award and Los Angeles Film Festival award based on her life.
Her advice for authors includes:
- Knowing what your intention is as the author before you start writing.
- Include pictures that carry the story, not fluff for fillers.
- Use lots of stories and examples.
- Tie everything together.
- End with power.
