Jeffrey Brown is the author of numerous bestselling Star Wars books, including Darth Vader and Son and the middle-grade Jedi Academy series. He grew up in Michigan, where a lot of snow fell every…

Nat'l Inner Beauty Day! Oct 7th & Let Me Help You Turn Your Story Into Profit @ #FullerWoman TODAY




As part of the International Fuller Woman Expo October 7th 10am to 4pm, I'll be doing a workshop on Turning your Story Into Profit. More info can be found at www.fullerwoman.org or go directly to https://www.facebook.com/events/477045286007522 for details.

About workshop facilitator:

Detroit native, Sylvia Hubbard, a single mother of three, has worked tirelessly to promote and encourage emerging writers in Michigan. She independently published her first romance novel in 2000 and has continued to write in that genre, sometimes venturing into other subgenres. Always urban and contemporary styled, her writing is enjoyed all over the world. She has published 6 paperbacks and over 30 e-books. 

The same year she published, Ms. Hubbard also created Motown Writers Network to fill the lack of education and networking for Michigan authors online and offline. By 2004, she was frustrated that all the literary conferences had moved too far away from the city and co-created The Essence of Motown Literary Jam Conference held only in the City of Detroit annually.

We are so very pleased to have Sylvia with us to show us how to publish and craft our own stories for the masses.
