We’re just about one week, make that 7 days from BlogHer…and it’s time to get moving!
As you may know from my incessant blogging on the topic, I’m going to be speaking at BlogHer. Not only that, I am moderating the panel. Which means I have a good reason for the rash I just broke out into.
But never fear, because as you can see from the description below, I have what has to be the coolest panelists hitting this session with me…
What We Do: Blog to Book ReduxThis session rocked the house last year, so we’re bringing in more bloggers, publishers and agents to dish about your opportunities to turn your blogging talent into a book publishing dream come true. Ellen Gerstein from Wiley & Sons has published many a blogger’s book. Neeti Madan is a literary agent with Sterling Lord. Jennette Fulda and Rita Arens represent two different blog to book approaches, one a memoir and the other a blogging anthology. Walk away with some insider info and effective tactics you can employ to get yourself on the published author path.
My mission is to make this the most rocking panel at BlogHer. Which will be tough, but it’s a goal worth shooting for. For everyone who has written a book, or considered writing a book, or, heck, even read a book, give me some feedback. What would you want to hear us talk about?
*What would you want to hear from successful, published authors?
How did you come up with your book idea, what were your challenges? Did Oprah* call yet?
*What questions would you ask an agent?
How do you pick who you represent? What does that 15% get me? How can you get me on Oprah?
*What would you ask someone at a publishing house?
What kinds of books are you looking for? Why don’t you ever return my phonecalls? How can you get me on Oprah?
The more feedback, the better the session, so fire away!
*this may end up being an “oprah free zone”, if such a thing can exist on planet earth!
