Lessons from a First Time Author

February 23, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST

Many people have ‘write a book’ on their bucket list. There are many reasons to write a book – share a story, promote a cause, inform the public, give people a distraction. Be better prepared by hearing one person’s story about getting a contract with McGraw-Hill as well as self-publishing on Amazon.


Learn if you should self-publish or go a traditional route (Diane has done both)
Better understand what publishers are looking for and how to attract them
Find out what you can negotiate in your contract
Discover the difference between being an author and being a writer
Be prepared for the financial investment to make your book a success
