Online Class coming up!

I've been sick as a dog for days and days (finally better now) and am SO far behind. I'm getting to the blog, I promise :-) In the meantime, here's some info about my upcoming online class:

WritersOnlineClasses.com is proud to present one of its two online April classes. To follow are the details of the April 15 – May 15 class:

CLASS: Take Your Book from Good to SoldINSTRUCTOR: Shirley Jump4-week class: April 15-May 15 COST: $30Registration ends April 14, 2010

Ten Lessons Learned: For first-time authors, the biggest hurdle to selling is learning how to craft a book that is better than good. Good wins contests. Good gets requests for partials. Good sometimes gets a revision request. But learning how to take “good” and turn it into “sellable” is the key to success. New writers may not see those small elements that make a big difference in a book’s salability. In this workshop, New York Times bestselling romantic comedy author Shirley Jump will share the ten lessons she learned that helped her take a book that had won the Tampa Area Romance Authors First Impressions contest and make it into one that was bought by Silhouette, plus how she turned formerly rejected books into single title sales. The workshop will include discussion of the revision process and the various elements authors need to look for before considering their book ready for an editor’s eyes. Today’s editors don’t have time to sit down with a fledgling writer and teach her how to take her novel to that next level. This workshop will fill in that final gap for the writer who is just ten lessons away from a sale.

INSTRUCTOR: New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shirley Jump spends her days writing romantic comedies (Vegas Pregnancy Surprise, July 2010) to feed her shoe addiction and avoid cleaning the toilets. As AJ Whitten (www.ajwhitten.com), she also writes horror young adult novels for Houghton Mifflin’s Graphia imprint with her daughter (The Well, September 2009). She cleverly finds writing time by feeding her kids junk food, allowing them to dress in the clothes they find on the floor and encouraging the dogs to double as vacuum cleaners.
