Join OKC Christian Fiction Writers (an ACFW chapter) for upcoming online class “What to Expect After Publishing” with award-winning author Maureen Lang on April 11-22, 2011.
Signed that contract or getting close to being published but aren’t sure what’s coming next?
In this two-week class, multi-published author Maureen Lang will share insights and helpful tips on topics like edits, marketing, what you can expect from your publisher, and more. We’ll start by exploring a general overview of the published author’s life, explode some myths regarding expectations vs. reality, share some statistics, and take a peek at how a writer juggles a professional and private life while maintaining the identity God meant us to have.
Whether you are newly published, contracted, agented or close to being published, you won’t want to miss this class! Cost is $20.00 for local chapter (OCFW) members, $25.00 for all others.
Maureen Lang has always had a passion for writing. She hand wrote her first novel around the age of ten, put the pages into a notebook she covered with soft deerskin for a “hardback” cover (nothing but the best!) then passed it around the neighborhood for rave reviews. It was so much fun she’s been writing ever since. Eventually Maureen became the recipient of a Golden Heart Award from RWA, followed by the publication of three secular romances. Life took some turns after that and she gave up writing for fifteen years, until her faith sent her in a new artistic direction. Soon she won a Noble Theme Award from American Christian Fiction Writers (now the Genesis), and a contract followed a year or so later for her Inspirational historical fiction Pieces of Silver, (nominated for a Christy in 2007). The sequel, Remember Me, released in February of ‘07. She also has three women’s fiction novels from Tyndale House Publishers, The Oak Leaves released in May of ’07, On Sparrow Hill and My Sister Dilly released in ’08. Her Great War Series followed, Whisper on the Wind, Springtime of the Spirit, and Look to the East, all three set in Europe during the First World War. Maureen lives in the Midwest with her husband, two sons and their dog, Susie.
