Is there a book in you? @ The Book Shepherd's Office
Jun 28 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

Over 80% of Americans think they want to write a book. Is that you? Do you know the “why” of why your book should be available to others? And, do you need to learn the basics of publishing, what it takes to turn your vision, your words, into a print book? Dr. Judith Briles, The Book Shepherd,™ will show and teach you how at her exclusive Publishing 101 Workshop for Newbies.

Designed in an all-day workshop guided by Judith, Publishing 101 Workshop for Newbies is for those who think they want to write a book; who want to write a book; are currently working on a book; and want to discover the publishing options that are viable today. It’s the first step … a baby step, but a huge one.

The Publishing 101 Workshop for Newbies has been created for you if these questions are in your space and you are feeling lost in the forest of authoring and publishing: Should I publish? How do I get started? What do I do? Which way should I go? Help!

It’s time to get found.

Judith will cover book mapping; how to create a catchy title; how to kick-start getting money; what is the publishing process from start to finish; and how to get started. The workshop is filled with creative activities to get your juices flowing. Plus, you’ll get some quiet time to write and get feedback. All in the comfort of her home and with her guidance.

Come network with other authors to be and get direction and guidance from The Book Shepherd to start your publishing journey.

There are three available sessions this summer: June 28th, July 20th, and August 24th. Each session will be from 9:00-4:00, and lunch and snacks will be included.
