The Life Cycle of a Book – a very cool resource

Twitter is an amazing resource and if you haven’t embraced it yet you may be missing out. I found this really useful tweet by Catherine C. Turner (@OzAlleyCat) 04/12/2011 10:00, which had in turn been posted by @SydneyWriters, who had posted it on behalf of someone else … I think you get the picture. But the great thing is that it gives those who are hoping to be published an insight into what is involved. Check out the videos in the link provided: The life cycle of a book – a very cool resource: http://scbwi.blogspot.com/2011/11/life-cycle-of-book-very-cool-resource.html

FIWP – Festival News

Stephanie Dale

It’s all go with the Festival of Independent Writers and
Publishers to be held on the Gold Coast on 29 October 2011. The program is
coming together nicely, with an exciting array of speakers and interviewers
lined up.

We’re privileged to have on board Stephanie Dale, who
recently won an award in the USA for the best indie-published novel in the
Australia/New Zealand category. Stephanie has made a spectacular success of
marketing her books, and in her session, Going Solo, she’ll impart plenty of
hints and tips to other aspiring indies.
