2017 MINI-CONFERENCE


Join us for our one-day Mini Conference 
with USA Today Bestselling Author
Lacy Williams




How to See Trends and Why You Should Be Watching
Editors often say they receive an overload of one type of manuscript during a season of publishing. The Amazon bestseller lists are frequently filled with a glut of similar books. Don’t fall victim to the “author collective unconsciousness”! Stand out from the crowd. This workshop will discuss how to identify trends in fiction as well as in the overall publishing landscape, as well as how to position your books for success (indie or trad).

Indie Publishing 101
Self-publishing can seem overwhelming. Whether you’re a complete newbie or a professional, learn what’s working in the indie publishing world for 2017 in this session that will cover an overview of indie publishing.

The Business of Writing
Whether you are publishing independently or with a traditional publisher, there are certain characteristics that define a professional writer. Learn how to take your writing to the next level by treating your writing like a career, not a hobby.

Fear+Less
What is the number one thing holding you back from achieving your writing dreams? This session will ask you to look beyond your excuses to the heart of the matter. What does God have to say about fear? This session will feature a combination of techniques, Scripture, and action plans to help you overcome.

With a bonus mini-session “Fitness for Writers” taught by Lacy and Luke (her husband), a fitness coach.


About Lacy
Lacy Williams might be a USA Today bestselling author, but she starts every manuscript the same way you do: with an empty screen and that annoying blinking cursor. She has lots of obstacles, like the four kids age 7 and under that bless her socks off. Thanks to an amazing husband and partner, she has somehow managed to be a hybrid author since 2011, publishing 39 books & novellas. Lacy’s books have been award finalists and have garnered their share of critical reviews, but it’s the occasional fan letter from treasured readers that keeps her writing. She is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers, Romance Writers of America, ALLi, and Novelists Inc
