The Write Life: How to Publish and Succeed as a Professional Author

Monday, February 19, 2018

You've always loved telling stories. Now, you've written one...but what do you do with it?

Over the course of two workshops, learn tips on getting published from bestselling, award-winning author Sara Dobie Bauer. Find out about self-promotion and social media, too, because being an author isn't just siting around alone, writing the great American novel. It's about book signings, conventions, paid freelance gigs, and having an online presence. It sounds daunting, but living the author life can be a lot of fun!

Sara Dobie Bauer is an author, model, and mental health advocate with a creative writing degree from Ohio University. She lives with her husband and two precious pups in Northeast Ohio, although she'd really like to live in a Tim Burton film. She is author of the paranormal rom-com Bite Somebody series from World Weaver Press, among other ridiculously entertaining things. Learn more at http://SaraDobieBauer.com.
