Anyone who has had dreams of being a published author may enjoy a preview of how to do that, thanks to Inside the Publishing Industry, a free program that will be held at the North Port Public Library from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 19, Sarasota County has announced.
This one-hour overview of the publishing process is for people who have written a book or who are thinking of doing so, a news release explains. “Find out the differences between working with an agent versus an editor and what happens after a book deal is made,” the release says.
