Author Linda Maria Frank is presenting the program, "So You Want to Write a Story: A Conversation with Two Authors", with colleague Karen Bonnet at the Hampton Bays Public Library. This program allows aspiring authors to move from the world of an idea for a book to a published book, while keeping yourself relatively sane. Both Frank and Bonnet are self-published authors with both print and e-book formats. The program, presented at other libraries, includes an informative Power Point with handout, focusing on the important aspects of writing, publishing and marketing. Social media, the current engine of marketing, is presented in detail.
Frank and Bonnet provide good information with personal anecdotes from their own experiences in writing, self-publishing, and taking advantage of the Internet, especially through posting their local access TV show, The Writer's Dream. Participants will leave with a helpful handout to get them on their way to a published book.
Frank, a retired science teacher who resides in Massapequa, created the riveting series, Annie Tillery Mysteries, including The Madonna Ghost and Girl with Pencil Drawing. Bonnet, a long-time Oceanside resident, is a writer and publicist with KLB Services, and the author of the exciting adventure novel, "Whale Island and the Mysterious Bones", for children age eight to eleven years old.
The program will be presented at:
