Persistence Pays Off!: How to Stay Focused During Every Stage of Your Publishing Journey

From the first draft to your first submission to your first or even your tenth book deal, there are so many stages in a publishing journey where you can feel lost or unfocused. Charlotte Cheng will share her ten year endeavor towards selling her first picture book, which then led to selling six books in less than a year! For each stage of the publishing journey, Charlotte will also share valuable advice that she’s gathered from several published authors and illustrators. You’ll walk away with a toolbox of tips and tricks that will help you stay focused and persistent, no matter where you are on the path to publication!
