Nov. 16 – Author Sylvia Hubbard Publishing & Marketing Workshop at Ferndale Library

FERNDALE, MI  – The road traveled by independent authors can be rather steep in the 21st century, and the thousands taking part in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) this November will soon discover that there’s a lot more work to be done after you’ve finished your final page. Detroit author and founder of Motown Writers, Sylvia Hubbard, has published over 40 suspense romance books. Hubbard is coming to the Ferndale Library on Sat., Nov 16, to lead a workshop detailing the roadmap toward successful independent publishing.

Hubbard is an award-winning author, blogger, and an empowerment coach for those looking to get their writing published (or made available as E-Books). She’s also the founder of the Michigan Literary Network and CEO of HubBooks Literary Services. One of the many subjects she’s covered in books, blogs, and at speaking engagements, is internet marketing for writers.

When Hubbard visits the Ferndale Library, she’ll show aspiring writers and publishers how to navigate the new independent publishing paths available to them. Along with her presentation on how to best market a book in the 21st century, there will be resource sheets for participants to take home.

National Novel Writing Month, is an annual, Internet-based creative writing project that takes place during November. Participants attempt to write a 50,000-word manuscript within 30 days. At this mid-point of the month, Hubbard will provide valuable insights as to what to do next, once those novels are completed.

Registration is required, which can be done by phone (248-546-2504), or online
