Outline of webinar:

I’m sure you’ve all heard the expression that a picture is worth a thousand words…in fact, that platitude has been bouncing around the US press ever since the 1920’s.

While the concept doesn’t necessarily warm itself to the hearts of great authors and writers, we will illustrate in our fifteen minutes of fame…how the use of succinct and meaningful video can enhance and endear writers to their readers... to their publishers... and even to those all-important producers at those morning talk shows!!

Gail Yancosek Consulting produces videos with authors speaking to an established journalist that live on the authors’ websites and can be used for countless promotional opportunities.  For the readers, these videos add a human face to the emotional connection they already have to their favorite authors and favorite books.  For the publishers, the videos offer reasonably priced digital branded content that sells books.  And for the morning show producers looking for fun and interesting folks to fill their airtime, the videos offer a look at how well an author relates to the camera.

Inherent in the production of these videos, is the all-important component of media training.  For writers and authors, the ability to respond quickly and succinctly to any on-air question is priceless.

We will outline and explain the various aspects of how to achieve these goals, the necessary components of the video, various ways of producing them and how to use them and who to send them to.

Clay Gilbert To Present Webinar At #PromoDay2016

Clay Gilbert returns to present Getting Your Manuscript In Shape for Submission during the Promo Day 2016 event on Saturday 14th May.

Clay Gilbert To Present Webinar At #PromoDay2016


Clay Gilbert has been hearing the voices of aliens, vampires, and people from the future since about the age of four.  It wasn't long before he started to think taking notes on what they said might be a good idea.  This has led him many places—through the halls and classrooms of many schools, where he's been both in front of the teacher's desk and behind it, himself—to presenter's podiums at conventions, and, most often, to the comfortable chair behind his writing desk at home, where he uses his Dell computer as both a beacon and a translator for the voices that still find their way through from countless worlds and planes of existence. Clay is the author of Annah: Children of Evohe, Book One, Dark Road to Paradise, and Eternity, as well as the Chief Editor for PDMI Publishing.  These days, the place he calls home is Knoxville, Tennessee, where his cat, Bella, and his ball python, Andy, keep him company between visits from a teenaged alien named Annah, an undead, blood-drinking English professor named Martin Cabot, and a boy from the future named Eternity.  And it's a good thing, too—life is busy.  And Clay's still taking notes.

Out of the webinar:

Overview: So You Think You’re Ready To Publish—Let’s See

1)     What Do Editors—and Audiences—Look For? Does My Manuscript Have It?
a)     Completed manuscript—captivating opening, satisfying story development, compelling wrap-up and ending
b)     Well-developed and interesting characters—the character determines the events; the character compels the reader
c)     Internal logic—does everything make sense?
d)     Fresh ideas—or at least a new spin on old archetypes or classic situations

2)     Assessing Your Draft—Ready—Set—Go?
a)     Don’t submit a first draft.  Let it sit; get some distance.
b)     Polish—if it’ll shine up a car, it’ll shine up your story
c)     Revise—sometimes the BEST way to say something isn’t the first way we think of    

3)  It’s a Pitch, but Is It a Hit?  Learning how to Shape Your Submission
a)     Importance of a synopsis—be able to boil down your book into a paragraph summary.  Your reader—and your editor—only have so much time.  Put the best points of your book forward.

Summation: Once you’ve dealt with these aspects of polishing and packaging your work, you’re ready to submit—and hopefully, to publish!
