The small print: Registration includes morning coffee and a refreshment break as well as all required course materials, but not parking or lunch. Though the room where the seminar is to be held is climate controlled, it’s a good idea to dress in layers for your own personal comfort. Attendees arriving late will be admitted, however we ask that you arrive quietly in order to not disturb others in the group.

“Going in to the Publishing Success Network Seminar I had a lot of questions. Coming out, I had a lot of answers. Thank you!” -- Carrie Wheeler

“I attended the Publishing Success Seminar with Murray, David, and Linda and left the event with a solid grasp of the process of book writing, publishing, and marketing. The day is jam-packed with practical content and a wealth of experience -- plus, it’s an excellent place to network with other writers. I highly recommend taking the course if you are an aspiring author!” -- Ricky Shetty

“The Publishing Success Seminar with Linda, David and Murray was of great value to me. For seven years I’ve been considering writing a book and never really got to it because I’ve always wondered about how to publish and if it was worth the hassle. The seminar encouraged me by allowing me to see that it’s not that much of a hassle and can be a great success. Their experience replaced my wondering with facts and gave me a clear direction of how to get my book out there in the most successful way possible. The seminar provided invaluable insider insight into the publishing world. Definitely worth my while.” -- Terrence Clark
