www.novelconsultant.comThis past Saturday I was delighted to be the guest speaker for the Alameda Writers Group in Glendale.  What a nice, warm and enthusiastic crowd.  There were somewhere between 70 and 80 people who write everything from poetry to novels to screenplays.  They were very responsive to what I had to say and I loved them for it.  Getting up in front of large groups and telling them about the business you adore is one of my favorite things.  They always love the stories of my experiences as an agent.

After the seminar I sold and signed books.  This is also heartwarming because folks come up to say nice things and are happy to get a signed book.  "MIND YOUR BUSINESS: A Hollywood Literary Agent's Guide to Your Writing Career" has opened so many doors for me.  I get to hear the responses from the readers and the book keeps selling and selling all over the world.  Isn't that an amazing thing?

Well.....I'm happy to announce that I've finished writing up the Syllabus and all 6 Lectures for my online class titled "MOVING YOUR WRITING CAREER FORWARD".  I'll be doing the course for ESE Film Workshops in October.  There are so many people that learn the craft of writing and then don't know what to do to get into Hollywood or the Independent markets.  I tell how to do that in my course.

Yes, I'm still  a creative consultant for screenplays and novels.  This is a real calling for me.  It's great to see writers improve their work and move forward while working with me.  Check out my web site for all the info at:  www.novelconsultant.com

Keep writing.
