Program: The Pitfalls of Publishing: Scams & Side Eyes

July 12, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

As an author, it’s sometimes hard to decide what to spend your money on in the pursuit of publishing your novel and building your writing business.  From vanity pay-to-play businesses to well meaning, but ineffective services, it can be easy to choose poorly without some guidance. Three time USA Today Bestselling author, Jamie K. Schmidt, will go over things to watch out for in choosing an agent, red flags in publishing contracts, joining a boxed set with other authors geared to hitting a list, marketing bang for your buck, and advertising on social media.
Please register here to receive the Zoom link to participate.

USA Today bestselling author, Jamie K. Schmidt is known for her erotically charged romances, Jamie’s books have been called, “hot and sexy, with just the right amount of emotional punch,” and “turbo-paced, gritty, highly sexual thrill rides.” As a #1 Amazon best seller and a 2018 Romance Writers of America Rita® finalist in erotica, Jamie writes daily, drinks lots of tea, and sneaks away to play World of Warcraft whenever she makes her deadlines. Along with her husband who lets her stick magnetic signs on his car about her books and her thirteen-year-old son who wants to be her cover model, Jamie lives in Connecticut with her rescue pup Romeo, who is cool with her writing schedule as long as he can be cuddled up in a blanket next to her. You can find Jamie on Twitter at @jamiekswriter and on Facebook at, where she’ll be chatting about her latest book and wishing desperately for a kitten to be her new writing buddy and some carbs—not necessarily in that order.
