January 12, 2019

Finksburg Branch Library
2265 Old Westminster Pike
Finksburg, MD 21048

Speaker Denise Camacho will present:

How Do You get a Book Published? You’ve spent months, or years, sweating and swearing over a book and now you’re ready to draw the interest of agents and/or publishing houses. Or perhaps you’re in the midst of writing a book and you want to know the publishing challenges up ahead. The question looms: how do you get a book published? Getting a book published can be one of the most exciting things you will ever do. It can also be one of the most frustrating. Not only is the book industry incredibly specific about how they want you to go about approaching editors, literary agents, and other publishing professionals, but you have to compete with thousands of other aspiring authors. Denise will help you gain a realistic understanding of how the process works and how you can maximize your chances for success.  

As the president of Intrigue Publishing, Denise Camacho has spent more than 13 years navigating through the publishing pitfalls and has finally brought Intrigue into the traditional publisher realm. Denise spends most of her time reading new submissions and working with the acquisitions team to find those works that are worthy of becoming Intrigue properties. Along with running Intrigue, Denise is very involved with helping authors learn about publishing and marketing and how to avoid some of the major difficulties within the industry.
