Want to get into the lucrative field of ghostwriting? I'm teaching my online class, Ghostwriting 101, through Writer's Digest later this month. It starts on February 23, 2012. Based on Goodbye Byline, Hello Big Bucks: The Writer's Guide to Making Money Ghostwriting and Coauthoring Books, you'll come away from the class with a clear idea of the types of work and clients you should pursue along with a marketing plan and a letter of introduction, or LOI, to use with new clients.
And if you're in the Milwaukee/Madison/Chicago area and are serious about your writing career, check out the 10th Annual Writers' Fest, held March 9-11, 2012. I'll be presenting sessions on the benefits of specializing and on today's book publishing options; there are also sessions on everything from developing your platform to writing book proposals to memoir writing to social media. I'm looking forward to attending many of the sessions myself, and hope to see some of you there!
