LCW Kicks Off Fall Calendar with ePublisher Dr. Amy Deardon

Got a book bubbling inside and wondering where and how to get it published? Then mark your calendar for Lancaster Christian Writers 2012 Fall Kickoff Saturday, September 15th, with ebook publisher Dr. Amy Deardon at Lancaster Evangelical Free Church, 419 Pierson Rd, Lititz, PA, 17543 from 9:30AM-12 noon (registration opens at 9). Admission is FREE!!! So help us pass on this wonderful opportunity to other writers who might be interested.

Dr. Amy Deardon's full morning clinic, You Can E-Publish Your Book, covers the A-Z of do-it-yourself e-publishing. Amy shares, "E-books are the new publishing trend, generating about twice as much sales revenue in 2011 as print books (Publishers Weekly, Feb 27 2012). Independent publishing (through e-books) has never been easier or cheaper for small publishers and individuals, and has the potential to generate impressive passive income. This is a step-by-step workshop to learn how to find good topics, how to format and publish your e-book for Amazon's Kindle and B&N's Nook, and how to optimize book listings to generate sales."

A research scientist and author, Dr. Amy Deardon describes herself as a self-confessed skeptic who undertook a year-long investigation aimed at debunking the biblical claims of a resurrected Savior. That quest led her instead to personal faith in Jesus Christ. Her sci-fi time travel novel A Lever Long Enough was named winner of the 2009 Pluto Award and 2011 EPIC eBook Award. Amy founded her own publishing company, Taegais Publishing LLC, in 2008, and currently publishes and e-publishes books. She can be reached through her websites at www.amydeardon.com and www.ebooklistingservices.com.

Marlene Bagnull, director Greater Philadelphia Christian Writers, will also be bringing her conference bookstore, including a wide variety of writer, eBook, and other publishing resources. And for LCW members who just can't wait another month to share their own work, a peer critique session will be offered directly following the morning clinic.
