First Word Schedule:
OF HUMAN BONDAGE: CONNECTING CHARACTERS AND READERS (Cheryl Klein)
“I didn’t connect with the protagonist.” There are few more frustrating lines for a novelist to read, as this person who lives, breathes, and moves in your mind somehow didn’t spark for that reader on the page. Sometimes it’s the reader’s fault, for sure! But other times, it’s a matter of finding new ways to introduce your characters, showing their vulnerability, or building out their dimensions. In this talk with real-book examples, we’ll explore concrete methods for creating bonds between characters and readers.
ELEVEN WAYS EVERY AUTHOR CAN EARN MORE FROM EVERY STORY (Sean Platt and Johnny B. Truant)
Ever look into your back catalog and wonder how you can breathe new life into your old books (and your bank account)? Or maybe you’re faced with more ideas than time, and you need to prioritize them? Bestselling authors Sean Platt and Johnny B. Truant have made careers out of pushing boundaries and testing strategies for their author business, adopting the things that pay off and scrapping what doesn’t. They’ll share eleven strategies based on their successful lessons and embarrassing failures so you can start earning more from every story that leaves your head.
Detailed, downloadable schedule will be available to NINC members and registered conference attendees.
