My last post addressed what to do when you finish the first draft of your book, which is to rewrite. When that process is done, whether next week, next month or years from now, your remaining task is to get your story published.
Freelance editor Laurie Gibson and book designer Leslie Fitch will talk about that major step during a free presentation titled Book Publishing 1-2-3: From the Writer's Fingers to the Reader's Hands at 3 p.m. Sat., July 11, at Campbell Library in Campbell, CA. The women will talk about how to connect with literary agents and how a manuscript works its way through the publishing process, then end with a Q & A session.
If you're not local, here are some great resources on the subject:
