Writing and Editing the Breakaway Self-Published Book: Writer's Digest Conference Session
Writing, editing, and marketing are very different skills, utilizing different aspects of your personality (and literally different parts of your brain). Before the marketing side of self-publishing is on the table, you first need a great book. You already know you must write and edit your book with the same high standards as if it were traditionally published. But without the benefit of a trusted agent, editors, and copyeditors, that can be challenging—it’s challenging for all authors. Red Room CEO and Editor in Chief Ivory Madison will share the "Red Room Method," which helps you blast through writer’s block to become a great writer, and quickly develop into a razor-sharp editor of your own work, skills that will empower you for a lifetime.
