The Business of Being a Spiritual Writer Colorado
June 9, 2022
In “the old days” an author could write a manuscript and “throw it over the wall” to the publisher who would take care of the rest. That is no longer the case. The most important quote I’ve heard from a publishing house CEO:
“Fifteen years ago all I cared about was the quality of the writing. Now I don’t even look at the writing unless they have a platform.”
Not only does an author need a platform, they must enter the market very strategically in order to make that platform, and that book, happen. They must operate like an entrepreneur – agile, flexible, and creative in their business.
This seminar is a step-by-step roadmap of best-practices for figuring it all out. Brian Allain has advised many spiritual writers, and before entering the publishing industry he led several successful high-tech businesses. Brian has an MBA from the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania, where he was designated a Palmer Scholar, their highest academic award. Now he is dedicated to helping spiritual authors succeed.
The seminar will take place at St. Andrew United Methodist Church in Highlands Ranch, CO (a suburb of Denver).
