Creative Writing Workshop

Most writers are introverts and cling to the hope that a publisher will do their marketing for them, but those days are over, says award-winning author Karen Simpson. A selfprofessed introvert, Simpson acknowledges periods of doubt in her writing ability and less than stellar spelling skills. Nevertheless, she overcame these and 15 publisher rejections to see her book, Act of Grace, now enjoyed by readers in homes, libraries, classrooms and book clubs. She ascribes the support of other writers and use of social media to her literary success. Why let your dream of authorship perish? Reserve your place with Simpson to learn the secrets to successful publishing in Marketing Your Book: A Savvy Writers Guide.

Karen Simpson

Marketing Your Book: A Savvy Writers Guide Whether your book is traditionally published or self-published, every writer needs to know how to effectively reach readers for their work.
