Calling All Writers to: Writer’s Haven! Spark & Strategize with Two Published Authors! (Zoom and in-person) Saturday, October 7 at 2:00 p.m. (DeMayo room)

Is there a book in you? You don’t have to settle for self-publishing. It’s possible to be offered a traditional publishing deal. Let two authors who’ve done it show you how! Velya Jancz-Urban and Ehris Urban are authors of four traditionally published books, including How to Survive a Brazilian Betrayal (Green Writers Press, 2019), and Dare to Be a Green Witch (Llewellyn Worldwide, 2021). Ehris is a green witch, author, herbalist and holistic nutritionist. Velya is a vivacious teacher, public speaker, author, and herstory unsanitized expert.

Get some great suggestions from Velya and Ehris to help you land your own book deal. The way books should be written has changed – and Velya and Ehris will help you write a book that follows the 2023 blueprint formula. The most important thing to remember is that traditional book publishers publish books for profit.
