“Publishers, Publicists, and a Reading Public” at MWA Annapolis

October 11, 2015


On Wednesday, October 21st, I presented “Publishers, Publicists, and a Reading Public,” at the monthly meeting of the Annapolis chapter of the Maryland Writers’ Association at Maryland Hall. The talk addressed my ongoing experiences as a debut novelist, focusing on many of the lessons I’ve learned–often the hard way–leading up to and following the April 2015 publication of Up the Hill to Home, including the concept of direct submissions to publishers (that is, traditional publishing without an agent), what to expect when working with a publicist, and the many challenges associated with building readership.

A video of the presentation (in three parts) is posted to the MWAA website.
