Publish the Book ~ The Writer’s Vision

I am thrilled to share a special workshop designed at helping writers get to the finish line once they have written the book. Not many writers can say they have written and published four books in four years! Author and dear friend, Nancy Arroyo Ruffin brings you a wonderful workshop that is sure to help you PUBLISH THAT BOOK! 


So you’ve written the book, now what? Do you have a vision for how you’re going to get the book you’ve worked so hard on into readers’ hands? Not really? Then this workshop is for you. The workshop is designed for the writer who has completed at least 80% of their book manuscript. Bring your writing goals to fruition with this class and learn how to take your writing goals to the next level by creating a vision board.


This one-time workshop will guide you through the process of designing your OWN writing vision board. During the workshop you will learn techniques on how to identify your visions/goals necessary for the upcoming year. You will learn how to file for a copyright, how to purchase an ISBN number, the importance of editing, cover design, and the many other steps that will take your book from manuscript to finished product. You will learn how to set clear, specific, and realistic time frames for each step in the process. You will learn how to identify potential roadblocks and create solutions to overcome them. Lastly, you will learn how to reinforce your vision through the use of daily affirmations and how to use your vision board to help keep your attention on your intentions.
