Press Release Summary = Veteran Book Acquisitions Editor Terry Whalin will answer writer's questions in a FREE 70-minute teleseminar on June 5, 2007 at 5:30 p.m. PST/ 8:30 p.m. EST
Press Release Body = Scottsdale, AZ, May 31, 2007: It's a rare opportunity for writers to ask a book acquisitions editor a question. Many editors never teach at a public writer's conference. To call an editor on the phone to orally pitch a book idea risks making more a negative impression instead of a positive one.
Over 81 percent of Americans feel they should write a book and more than 6 million Americans have actually written a manuscript-just over 2 percent of the population. They bring their hopes and dreams to this manuscript and want to get their words into print. But most of them are doomed to failure because they don't understand publishing.
Rather than have the "content" for this event to come from Terry's head for the June 5, 2007 teleseminar at 5:30 p.m. PDT / 8:30 p.m. EDT, Whalin has decided to let the participants ask the questions. Ask a question and register for the free teleseminars at: www.askterrywhalin.com .
Each person who asks a question and registers will receive a free hour-long audio workshop from Whalin called Straight Talk from the Editor, 18 Keys to a Rejection-Proof Submission. Whalin is introducing a new audio product for any would-be book author, Editor Reveals Book Proposal Secrets (www.bookproposals.com ).
For the last five years, Whalin been a book acquisitions editor at Howard Books, an imprint of Simon and Schuster and Cook Communications. He has authored more than 60 books from traditional publishers and written for more than 50 publications. He's on the board of directors of the American Society of Journalists and Authors, the leading nonfiction writers group in the nation and creator of the popular Right Writing News (www.right-writing.com/newsletter ).
