IWOSC ALL-STARS 1: A Hot Half-Dozen Authors Tell How They Write, Publish, and Promote

Monday, November 19, 2012

From Memoir to Mystery, Peanut Butter to Charley Parkhurst, Filmmaking to Therapy, You’ll Learn and be Entertained by These Authors.

The first “IWOSC ALL-STARS” panel discussion! Six authors, all members of the 30-year-old writers’ organization, will share stories of how they wrote, published, and promoted their new books. Fiction, nonfiction, biography, how-to, mystery: it’s a mixed bag, and these stars will shine.

We’ll learn:

  • their writing process
  • their writing history
  • how they researched their topics
  • how they got published (agent and traditional publisher, or self-published)
  • how they market and promote their books
  • what promotional activities translate into sales
  • and more!

We’ll also have time for your questions.
Books will be available for sale and signing.

SYLVIA CARY, ”The Therapist Writer” (how-to; reference)
KAREN KONDAZIAN, “The Whip” (historical fiction)
JON KRAMPNER, “Creamy & Crunchy: An Informal History of Peanut Butter, the All-American Food” (nonfiction)
