If you’re an aspiring writer, a good literary manager is often a vital ingredient for your success and continuing career. They’re with you on every step of your journey. They give you notes on your projects, help you strategize and prioritize, keep you motivated, and get you in front of execs, producers, and other players to get that next job. It’s a crucial and ongoing relationship that can make or break your career. The manager/client relationship is an intimate and important one that should be based on trust and communication, as well as on personalities. Because of this, it’s worth taking the time to think about what kind of working relationship you want to have with your rep.

Be A Bestseller Masterclass series wsg @SylviaHubbard1 – Structure Your Story for Success #motownwriters #michiganwriters #michlit #writingcommunity

https://masterclass.beabestseller.net/SylviaHubbard

Why not sign up for the Be A Bestseller – Structure Your Story for Success masterclass series?

My friend, Emma Dhesi, has brought together 20+ writers, creatives, and influencers for this complimentary training series on ways to structure your stories, develop plot twists and manage your projects, rejuvenating both your writing and your energy.

And you can access it all by clicking here: https://masterclass.beabestseller.net/SylviaHubbard

Is it possible to write your book in only a few writing sessions a week?

Absolutely.

But is it as easy as some people make it sound?

Definitely not.

And it’s downright impossible if you never get started.

Do you marvel at how published writers plot and put together such wonderful stories? Whether it be literary, psychological thriller, epic fantasy, Western romance and everything in between?

Do you admire how they bring their stories full circle, connect all the dots and leave readers wanting more, and you how they did it?

Believe me, they didn’t do it alone. Crafting a novel takes time, and it takes support – sometimes a lot of it.

And that’s why I’m so excited for the Be A Bestseller – Structure Your Story For Success masterclass. It’s a gathering of writers who know the challenges you’re facing in your work. 

Writers who’ve taken time to understand how best to create writing rituals, use a story structure that works for them, and build a community. Authors who use new ways to find fans and keep them engaged.

This two-week summit lets you in on their strategies and tips, insights you won’t find anywhere else on how to revise, world build and put together a query letter that rocks!

It’s totally free, but you have to sign up to get access.

Claim your spot here: https://masterclass.beabestseller.net/SylviaHubbard

Happy Writing!

This week on Indie Monday, I’m proud to host Rick Bailey, author, educator, essayist, and world traveler. Rick grew up in Freeland, Michigan, on the banks of the Tittabawassee River. He taught writing for 38 years at Henry Ford College in the Detroit area. While writing textbooks for McGraw-Hill, he also wrote with classes he taught, a work habit that eventually led to Tittabawassee Road, a blog of essays on family, food, travel, and currrent events. His blog became the basis for American English, Italian Chocolate: Small Subjects of Great Importance (University of Nebraska Press, 2017).

His second book is the memoir/travelogue The Enjoy Agenda at Home and Abroad (University of Nebraska Press, 2019).
