Anne Janzer      




Did you know that only 6% of nonfiction writers stick with their initial outlines? (That number must be smaller for fiction writers!)

Did you know that while most books take longer than anticipated to write, most authors find that the experience exceeds their expectations?

And for many published authors, the biggest surprise about the process of writing is what happens afterward—marketing.

In this session, Anne Janzer will share the results of a  survey of more than 400 authors, which she conducted as research for her most recent book Get the Word Out: Write a Book That Makes a Difference. We’ll cover insights about publishing, book marketing, motivation, and of course the writing process. Anne will also share the words of advice and wisdom from the survey participants. 


I hope to see you there.
