December 9, 2013 to December 15, 2013. The Help Desk - A Christmas Gift for Savvy Authors with Beth Barany
About the Workshop -- THE HELP DESK: WHAT'S YOUR PROBLEM?
It's the holiday time -- the season for giving, and we here at Savvy love the giving far more than the receiving. So we've teamed up with some of our most popular and experienced instructors, editors and writing coaches to help make your holiday season brighter and keep your writing on track during the end of the year insanity.
Therefore, for one week, five of our favorite elves will toss out ideas to help 20 writers each who are stuck for one reason or another on their manuscript. And we'll be doing it ABSOLUTELY FREE.
This workshop is taking place in a very cozy virtual room. We'll be shoulder to shoulder, crammed into it, but it's the season for closeness, isn't it? Even if everyone around you is a stranger. There'll be an opening 'lesson' offering their sagest advice and then it'll open for questions.
No pickpockets will be allowed in the door but picking each other's -- as well as my -- mind to get a better grip on your story or writing career is what this is all about.
Registration is first come, first serve - you have a choice of one instructor to direct one question to. Register here to work with Beth Barany.

December 18, 2013, 6:00 p.m. PST - 7:00 p.m. PST | 9:00 p.m. EST - 10:00 p.m. EST Live SavvyAuthors.com Chat on 4 tips to help you get motivated for your writing.
CHAT TOPIC: Life is busy. We have other responsibilities -- families, jobs, and of course, sleep. But you want to write that book. I do too! I run a business as a writing coach and publishing advisor, and I work out and have responsibilities, and stay up late meeting deadlines.
So what's a writer to do? How do we uncover our motivation to write, and stay writing? An active writer with 5 books to my name (3 nonfiction and 2 fiction, so far), I wrestle with this question all the time. Over the years, I've gathered lots of tools I use to get my writing done, and I'll share these with you. They're the same tools I use with my clients and I can see from their results that they work.
In our chat I'll share with you some of the practical and simple tips that I use to get motivated and get my writing done. Tips that can help you focus and get writing!
So come with your questions and suggestions, and let's have a good time uncovering our motivation to write.

Sign up Deadline: August 29, 2013
Fee: OIRW Member $20
Fee: Non-Member $25
You've written your book and now you're ready to query agents and editors, or self-publish your book. Congratulations! And now what?!
- How are you going to sell your book?
- How are you going to share about your whole book in just a few phrases?
- How do you find your audience?
- And where do you begin with all the book promotions? (So many choices!)
Authors often think that all the hard work is done after they've written their novel. But no! Our work has just begun, because now we need to focus on connecting with and "hooking" our readers so they'll pick up our book, and tell their friends about it, too.
This course, by book marketing and publishing consultant Beth Barany, will cover how to start your book promotions and a step-by-step process for creating all the building blocks of your book promotion plan that you can use for each of your books.
We'll cover such topics:
- How to craft short phrase that entices your readers and agents (similar but not always the same!)
- How to identify your strengths and weaknesses in promotions *Tip: Focus on your strengths!
- How to determine the best ways for you to get the word out: social media, email, blog, site, postcard, etc. (Again, we'll focus on your strengths, but it's good to know your options!)
- How to identify your story's theme and use that to your advantage (Yes, you have one!)
- How to identify your ideal readers
- How to handle the overwhelm of all of today’s book promotion options (I know how you feel!)
Beth will offer templates, tips, answer questions, and walk you through the ground work for building your book promotions every step of the way. Beth has tried lots of different ways to get the word out about her books, and will share from her own experience, as well as from the experience of other writers. She'll give lessons and answer your questions during this month-long course.

Featuring the artists who created Banned & Recovered: Artists Intervention -- a collective response by 37 artists to the conspicuous success of book challenges and bannings in U.S. schools and libraries and the real threats to the U.S. Constitution posed by the 2003 U.S. Patriot Act.
Artists created new works of art inspired by titles from the long list of banned and challenged books. The result is a spectacular collection of witty, whimsical, angry, and thought-provoking statements about the ramifications of censorship and the importance of free speech. Together, the works shed new light on problematic issues and engage visitors in a lively dialog about the power of art in the face of censorship.

Books represent a significant symbol of one of our most important and overlooked missions on Earth. Our legacy. Maybe you gave up on that dream because of fears that it takes too much time, or fears that your ideas aren't good enough, or that writing a book is too large an undertaking. Beth will help you discover that none of that is true.
What you'll take away at this powerful session:
- Explore your unique legacy and the impact you'd like to have in the world
- Identify your fears or blocks in the way of writing
- Uncover the key steps to go from start to finish to get writing now!
- Discover the essential elements of writing a book

“Beth's workshop was great. It helped me explore the ideas that had been floating around in my head for years. I learned things about myself and my writing skill.” -- Zana Lugo, Ameriprise
“This is to acknowledge Beth Barany and her workshop. As a writer and publisher of personal growth related human interest stories, and as one with over tweny years' experience attending and facilitating a multitude of personal growth workshops, seminars and conferences, I highly recommend Beth and this workshop. I found the experience to be informative, revealing and even playful. I would encourage anyone wishing to have accurate and meaningful insight on their "inner journey" to participate in this experience.”
-- Don Kirschner, Founding Director at the Society for Return to Honor
“If you're like me and you've always wanted to write a book, but didn't quite understand how, Beth's instruction is an excellent resource.”
-- David Kwong, Berkeley, CA
