Jack Castle's workshop is designed for anyone who is interested in becoming a published author, with a traditional publishing house, regardless of where they are at in the writing process. And Jack knows a little bit about getting published with a traditional publisher. With one query letter and book proposal he landed a publisher. Castle's first novel, The Europa Journal, went all the way to #1 on Amazon's Best Seller list and all of his books have been on Amazon's Top 100 List. His class will be focused on how to write a query letter, what goes on behind closed doors and he will be available for questions afterwards. "I designed this class because I wanted to give back to my fellow budding authors." For more on Jack Castle, his real-life adventures, and his books, you can visit him at www.JackCastlebooks.com.

Note: Be sure and bring something to take notes with.
