Rinzler's webinar will be useful for users who:

  • Have never been published by a commercial house
  • Have been published but want a better deal next time around
  • Are seeking an agent
  • Are planning to submit without an agent
  • Are thinking about self-publishing first as a strategy for getting a better deal down the road

This is a limited-time special, and ends effective Aug. 31. Don't miss out! Sign up here.

(By the way, if you sign up monthly, I've been told you will get access to the Rinzler webinar effective Sept. 15. They need some time to create access for new users.)
