John Grisham scribbled notes on a legal pad between court sessions. Those notes eventually became his best-selling novel, A Time to Kill. Recollections of growing up in depression-era Ireland compelled Frank McCourt to write his best-selling memoir, Angela’s Ashes. Is a novel or nonfiction book burning inside you? Do you dream of being a published author? If so, learn the ins and outs of publishing from a pro who has helped dozens of students become authors.
Discover how the book publishing industry works, how to pitch your idea to publishers and agents and how to guide your book to publishing success. As a bonus, one-on-one consulting with Pauline about your project after the course eliminates any excuses preventing you from realizing your publishing dreams.
