Struggling with a title for the book you're writing, editing, or publishing? I can help. Next Thursday, October 15, I'm leading a Bay Area Editors' Forum workshop on using name-development techniques for crafting book titles. It's free (like all BAEF meetings), it's fun, it's near a BART station. And you're invited.
Thursday, Oct. 15
7 to 9 p.m. (networking begins at 6:30)
47 Post St., 4th floor, San Francisco
I recently gave this presentation to the Independent Book Publishers' Association in Los Angeles. Here's what the IBPA's president said about the workshop:
You managed to not just demystify but actually define a doable system for a process that had always been soft, fuzzy, and difficult to nail down. Every author and publisher can benefit from your techniques.
The San Francisco event host, BAEF, represents an outstanding group of professional editors in every specialty, from copyediting and proofreading to acquisitions and developmental editing. If you need an editor—and believe me, we all need an editor—this meeting will provide an excellent opportunity to connect with the cream of the crop.
Let me know if you plan to attend! And be sure to introduce yourself at the workshop.
P.S. Get a foretaste of the workshop in my 2008 post "The End of Author Angst: Book Titles Made Easy."
P.P.S. Can't come to the workshop? Contact me about title consultation. (Not free, like the workshop, but quite reasonable.)
