Immediate Press Release

Focus On E-Books

Lakeside Terrace – May 20, 2017

7880 Glades Rd, Boca Raton, FL 33433

Come join the Florida Writers Association (FWA) for the second focus day of the year. There will be a day full of workshops all related to E-books beginning at 8:30 a.m.

E-books are their own little monster for authors, but they are a major format in which books are currently being sold. Especially with programs like Amazon’s Kindle Direct. They have their own platform and require separate formatting and cover designs from paperback books. Four members of faculty will cover the various parts of e-book creation.

After a continental breakfast, Elle Bryant will teach attendees how e-books have changed the industry and the self-publishing author, including pricing, distribution, and the E-Reader. Following a brief break, Milly Taiden will cover the various publishing platform options and their benefits. There will be an hour long interlude for lunch and networking. The next to last workshop will be presented by Robin Ludwig, who will talk about cover designs, getting started and more. Kelli Smith will conclude the workshops by discussing the different marketing platforms and the strategy behind boosting visibility. The day will conclude with a panel discussion and closing remarks. And don’t forget about the door prizes!

Attendees don’t have to take all four workshops. The time can be used to add one-on-one interviews with any one of the presenters. (Note: Cost for a 15 minute interview is $25 plus registration for the full focus day is required.)

Last year, one of the attendees said, “I always learn a lot from the workshops I go to. There’s always something I can take away and utilize in my writing.”
