Filling a gap that exists in today's writing reference manuals and writer's conferences, this two-week online course offers a unique look at the publishing business and the submission process from the agent's/editor's viewpoint. This one-stop-shopping class also will provide a thorough breakdown of the elements that go into a cover letter, synopsis, biography, and promotion plan. You will learn about: * Differences in publishers and what is a Print On Demand publisher versus print on demand printing technology? * What is a vanity press, and can they get my books on store shelves? * What's the advantage to going e-book? * Should I care about distribution? Added to the mix will be Lynn Price's own special collection of common writing mistakes that often result in a rejection letter - point of view switches, comma misplacement, bad transitions between new paragraphs. This fast-paced, two-week look at the publishing world will cover the whole enchilada so writers can become better at their craft and understand how the industry works.

When: February 13, 2012 through February 26, 2012

Speaker Information:          
Along with being the editorial director for Behler Publications, Lynn Price is the award-winning author of the novel, Donovan's Paradigm, and of the writing reference book, The Writer's Essential Tackle Box: Getting a Hook on the Publishing Industry. Debuting last year as part of the Get It Write series, this second work provides "an insider's view geared to inform and educate writers as to how we work, why we work, and the pitfalls to avoid." Since 2003, Behler Publications has been publishing best selling and critically acclaimed works chronicling personal journeys with socially relevant themes: stories that deal with how people are influenced and changed by their experiences and how they deal with those repercussions. The books invite introspection: "I'm a better/more thoughtful/ smarter person for having read this book." In addition to extensive speaking engagements at writer's conferences all over the country, Lynn also assumes a lighthearted and somewhat irreverent tone in addressing the many issues facing today's writers on the Behler Publications blog:
