Note: Our March event has already taken place. Please check back soon for information on our Tuesday, April 6 presentation.
Has the time come for you to write and publish a book? Yes—but where do you start?
- Should you look for an agent or approach publishers yourself?
- Should you SELF-publish?
- What about writing tips, time management, writing pitfalls?
- How do you promote your book once it is published?
- Most important, how do you ensure it brings you business!
Those conundrums will be considered at The Communicators Club’s virtual event set for March 2. With the tag-team help of NYC-based consultant Todd Cherches and literary veteran Ken Lizotte, our guests will learn why writing and publishing a book is not only possible, but the smartest strategic move you can make in 2021.
The noon to 1:15 p.m Zoom session will include reflections on the process by Ken’s client Todd, a first-time author whose book, “Visual Leadership: Leveraging the Power of Visual Thinking in Leadership and in Life,” was published by Simon & Schuster last year.
Time will be allotted for questions from attendees. A $10 fee will be charged for the presentation. Note: Registration details will be available soon—please check back.
