Jennifer S. Wilkov to Speak About How to Publish Your Book at the New York Public Library
Presentation Addresses Developing a Strategic Publishing Plan for Your Book & Writing Career
“Authors often don’t realize that they need to think through what their individual objectives are for writing and publishing their books first and then decide which method is best to fulfill their goals. To break into the publishing industry, writers need to determine their best publishing path with their writing careers in mind from the beginning with their first books as opposed to just throwing their projects out there to see if they will attract readers. When done well, the published book should cultivate other opportunities such as speaking appearances and deepen business relationships with prospects and clients, not just sell books,” states Jennifer S. Wilkov, CEO of Your Book Is Your Hook. “There are a number of ways to publish your book and many creative outlets to assist you. However, there are so many options that it can become extremely overwhelming and confusing for the writer who often doesn’t feel competent as a marketer or publisher for his or her own projects. A writer with an amazing concept could easily get rejected by the industry or ignored by the audience he or she has targeted. I want to prevent that from happening by educating writers and breaking down the cluttered and often conflicting information they find on the Internet into clear actionable steps they can take to really succeed.”
Ms. Wilkov’s talk will cover topics such as:
- Mythbusters about publishing including traditional publishing via an agent, self-publishing and e-book publishing
- The rules for each publishing method and the materials required
- How publishing decisions today can affect your writing career tomorrow
- What publishing industry professionals are thinking
The library talk is offered for free through the New York Public Library and is first come, first seated. For more information about the New York Public Library, please refer to http://www.nypl.org.
