On December 2nd and 16th, A Writer For Life sponsored the Revise and Submit Seminar through the Orange County Public Library system. This FREE event brought out some amazing aspiring and self-published authors that learned a whole lot while having a blast. I presented during the first week about revising your manuscript for submission by using a 7-step tried and true system to edit, perfecting the query letter, and writing the synopsis. During the second week, my amazing copy editor and fabulous writing colleague, Christine Edwards, shared her expertise in using social media to strategize when searching for the perfect agent or small press. She showed ways to keep track of queries, places to check up on the reputation of various agents & editors, and plenty of websites that authors need to know about when submitting. Our class was so well received, that we will be duplicating it in Brevard County some time in February. More information to come, so please follow this blog or like the facebook page to stay informed. A huge THANK YOU to our wonderful participants, and to my amazing partner in crime, Christine.
