Thursday October 23, 6:30 p.m. -7:30 p.m.
Ezra Lehman Library Room 205
Using his first novel, The Drogonsfyre Trilogy: Book One - Mask of the Cavalier, author J. R. Woltz will explain the process of publishing in the modern era. A main focus will include the often subtle differences in publishing terminologies of Mainstream (commercial), Independent, and Self-Publishing and what each entails. The broadest of layman's terms will be utilized and should be informative and easily understood by all, including college students regardless of year-level, undergraduate or graduate. Also included will be a brief segment on the author as artist and the processes of rendering/publishing art and its incorporation into his literary work.
