One of the complaints I often hear from agents and editors at conferences is how they feel the one area many writers can improve on is the business end. And, as an editor myself, I've noticed many authors while proficient in craft, flounder when it comes to business skills.
I'm a long-time entrepreneur, trained image coach, and workshop facilitator. I have long been in the business world and have helped many authors find their bearings in this challenging publishing business. I've written several articles on the business side of writing and often give presentations and online classes as well.
And look for Savvy Business Skills for Writers: Book 2--Branding and Promotion--coming in 2009.
