Florence, Oregon (PRWEB) September 17, 2016
LoveScience Media has announced that Duana C. Welch, Ph.D., author of Love Factually: 10 Proven Steps from I Wish to I Do, is an invited speaker for the Florence Festival of Books’ panel titled “The Path from Idea to Book.” The free panel includes former Seinfeld director Tom Cherones and kicks off the weekend of public access to authors and publishers, running from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m. on Friday, September 23rd. The panel focuses on the choice process of shaping a book through every step of its development, and includes question-and-answer opportunities for audience members.
Says Welch, “Many people have terrific ideas for books, but are unsure where to go from there. It’s an honor to be invited to share my experience of the decision path, from building a reader base, to deciding how and where to publish, locating the right professionals and agents, and pursuing publicity.”
Welch’s non-fiction book is the first to use science rather than opinion to guide men and women through every stage of dating, from before they meet until they commit. The five-member invited panel includes Welch, Cherones, who now writes The Hardly Boys humor series; Janet Wellington, author of e-book romance novels; poet Byron Dudley; and humor columnist and non-fiction writer Ned Hickson. Facilitator Kevin Mittge is a research librarian at the Siuslaw Public Library. The Friday panel is followed by an $8 talk at 7:00 p.m. by mystery thriller author Phillip Margolin. The Festival’s Saturday portion takes place from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and is free.
Continues Welch, “Writing is the easiest part of being an author; the difficulty is in the many other details and choices, which can feel overwhelming. I’m delighted to be part of this array of authors. The breadth of their experience and pathways to publishing will be a tremendous help to anyone who has a book in them and doesn’t know where to take it—or who is somewhere along the process and feels stuck.”
