So you’ve finished the writing your book/story, or have you? What (if any) revision work needs doing? Where can you go for feedback? How will you know when it’s ready to send out, and where should you try first? Join New Jersey Authors, Jon Gibbs (moderator); Danielle Ackley-McPhail; Kristin Battestella; Jim ‘JJ’ Lair; Melinda Leigh and Ilene Schneider, for a fun, informative discussion on getting published in today’s market, and find out why typing ‘THE END’ is really just the beginning.
