Some books are okay; others, good and few outstanding. So how does an author take an okay book and move it to the outstanding category? Award winning and best selling author L. C. Hayden will address this question on her upcoming workshop “How to Perfect Your Writing.” She will demonstrate how to use some literary concepts–such as diction, background story, flashbacks, setting and others–correctly. After her workshop, the attendees will easily know how to create the ideal story that will attract readers and publishers.
