Turn Your Book Into a Full-Time Living

If you're in the St. Louis area the week of Christmas, be sure to check out this great book publishing workshop by Peter Bowerman, author of The Well-Fed Self-Publisher: How to Turn One Book into a Full-Time Living.

Got a book in you (especially non-fiction) or one already out? Wondering if self-publishing makes sense? Struggling with how to best promote your masterpiece?

Join nationally renowned copywriting and self-publishing pro Peter Bowerman (in St. Louis for a few days visiting family for the holidays), author of the award-winning
Well-Fed Writer titles, for an information-packed 90-minute mini-seminar, presented by the St. Louis Publishers Association.

You'll learn how to:
  • Create a book that turns heads and grabs eyeballs
  • Find tons of reviewers anxious to publicize your book
  • Get the bookstore chains to come looking for you
  • Minimize your dependence on fickle mainstream media
  • Parlay one book into multiple income streams
Most importantly, you'll learn a radical new approach to book promotion -- one that keeps you in control. The result: less anxiety, higher profits, and more fun!
