I was lucky enough to read an advanced copy, and I think this is a book every writer should have on hand! Whether you’re just starting out or been in the biz for awhile, it’s a great tool! I will be particularly using her suggestions for attending a conference, this summer at Nationals!
Here’s a little information about the author:
Renee Knowles is an award-winning historical and contemporary romance author. She is also a published freelance writer and columnist whose work has appeared in national consumer and trade magazines, as well as newspapers. Besides fiction writing Renee is a freelance editor and writing coach.
In her business life, she’s the owner and president of Total Confidence Image Consulting, LLC, a full-service image and business-etiquette-coaching firm. She has spent over fourteen years as a business manager and successful entrepreneur, during this time serving as a board member of the Arlington LeTip International Chapter, as well as being active in many chamber of commerce organizations. She has presented workshops to writing groups all over the country.
Growing up in an entrepreneurial atmosphere—my family has owned a florist business for over thirty-seven years—I’ve gained a lot of business knowledge even from an early age. I’ve helped many authors find their bearings in this challenging publishing business.”
