Workshop 1: The Book Blueprint: Writing, Outlines and Developing Chapters

You may have heard, “Without a plan,  you plan to fail!” The same is true when you are endeavoring to write a bestselling book! In this workshop, we will walk step-by-step on the map, which is the outline, for your specific project. You will walk away with a detailed-oriented directional document that will help you soar during the retreat and beyond!

Workshop 2: Grammatically Incorrect: When Commas Save Your Sentences & Your Reputation

In this workshop, you will learn self-editing tips that will save you both time and money in the editorial process. In addition, we will discuss how to avoid the pitfalls of working with an editor and the various types of editing. Contrary to popular belief, all editors (or forms of editing) are not created equal.

Workshop 3: What is your Brand Identity and Key Message

How will readers get to know, like and trust you if you don’t have a consistent brand or key message? In this hands-on interactive workshop, you will create your brand identity, and get clear on your key message so you can attract and connect to your BEST audience.

Workshop 4: Marketing Strategies, Tactics and Tips to Sell Your Book

Did you know the #1 job of an author is to connect to their BEST audience? When you do this very well, the book sales will follow. How do you reach them? In this informative workshop we will cover pre-launch and post-launch marketing activities, how to leverage your book online to get more attention with readers, and in-person marketing strategies to meet and sell to your BEST audience.
