On Saturday he will talk about Widder’s Landing”and present a program for aspiring writers. Numerous colleges and universities began asking for readings and an “author presentation” on how he wrote the book, how he approached literary agents and publishers–and how he managed to get the book published. In response to this demand, he has developed a highly inspirational program that also includes the “changing world of publishing” and ways to develop a marketing plan (an essential component of the query letter.) He has presented programs all across Kentucky and in states from Missouri to West Virginia and Michigan to Florida. Last year he presented the writing program at the 2013 Readers Favorite Awards in Miami, Florida (when the novel won the Gold Medal for “Best Historical Fiction”) and he has been invited back this November to present to new award winners. Widder’s Landing is now in a 4th Printing at Acclaim Press.
