At the Aspiring Author Seminar, two published authors  share their personal publishing experiences. Information at this seminar will provide you with a blueprint for not only bringing your idea for writing into creation but also avoiding the obstacles that can block the road to your success. It can help you get your book in print months sooner and save you thousands of dollars.

In this information-packed program, we’ll discuss topics important to getting your book published:

  • The book development process: decide what to write and learn the best ways to get your ideas on paper
  • The different types of publishing and the advantages and disadvantages associated with each one
  • The powerful influence of marketing strategy all the way from the idea to the delivery of the book

Why should you write a book?

  • When you speak to groups, you can sell your book to attendees
  • It can be come a money-making product that you sell in your business
  • Being published positions you as an expert in the topic you write on
  • A book in the proper distribution channels can spread your message to a wider group of people than you could alone

As an added perk, once you pay to attend one Aspiring Authors Seminar, you can attend a future Aspiring Authors Seminar for a reduced fee.

If you are an aspiring author, don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to explore your dream. Space is limited for this unique seminar so reserve your seat today.

“I attended the Aspiring Author Seminar in 2006. What caught my eye was Maxie's name because we used to live in the same neighborhood, and I had followed his career. I had written a small book in 1980 and had some success with it. However, I knew it needed updating and more polish.
Maxie's part of the presentation gave me the motivation I needed and some guidelines to get started. When I heard Carrie's part of the seminar, I knew I had a long way to go. However, with Carrie's help, I finally re-published my book! I am computer-challenged and without your help and guidance, I would still be at ground zero.
Each time I look at my book, I see things Carrie helped me with — especially the set-up and lay-out. I am so pleased with the way it turned out!
My thanks to both you and Maxie for making my dream come true!”

“I can’t brag enough on Carrie Smith, Maxie Carpenter, and The Aspiring Author Seminar: From the Idea to the Shelf. I gained so much insight from this class as well as inspiration to go ahead and do it. Since sitting through the seminar, we have written, published, and already profited from our first book. We are finishing our second book and have a contract for a third book. Without this class, I don’t believe we would have even started this endeavor. In addition to a profit center, being an “author” has given us status — an “expert” title if you will. In selling our services, that expert title alone is priceless! Thank you, Carrie and Maxie!”
