Product Description

gold_workingindieauthors

There are more and more opportunities for editors to work directly with independent authors — those who are self-publishing and those who are looking to work with a publisher. Different authors will have different ranges of experience and understanding of the industry. Understanding where they are coming from and what they need can help you make a good initial impression and create lasting relationships.

This webinar covers setting expectations, establishing good communication, determining what services authors need, talking about pricing, and giving effective feedback, so that you can create positive ongoing working relationships, use your time efficiently, and be an asset to the authors who hire you.

Tanya Gold is a book editor, writing coach, and literary omnivore based in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She has been in publishing for about twenty years, and has worked on all kinds of cool books. These days, she edits fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry. She puts her industry experience and MA in creative writing to use by helping authors make their stories stronger, improve their writing skills, and navigate the complex world of publishing. It has been suggested that she reads too much for her own good. This might be true. www.TanyaGold.com
