Learn publishing secrets

By From page B10 | October 28, 2013

Calling all book lovers, writers and dreamers. Have you ever wondered how to get a book published? What are book publishers looking for in a manuscript? How has publishing changed with the rise of digital books?

To find out the answers to these and other publishing questions attend a presentation at the El Dorado County Library, 345 Fair Lane in Placerville, on Saturday, Nov. 2 at 1 p.m. Special guest Ted Savas from Savas Beatie LLC will share the secret world of book publishing.

Savas has been in the publishing business for decades and witnessed the changing landscape. He has seen the industry from all angles, as author, editor, publisher, agent and consultant and is an award-winning author in his own right.

Savas Beatie LLC is a leading military and general history publishing company located in El Dorado Hills. Since 2004, Savas Beatie has been publishing ground-breaking and award-winning titles.

“The world of book publishing is fascinating and changing rapidly,” said Savas, managing director of Savas Beatie. “I’m lucky that my passion is also how I make my daily living.”

He will be speaking on niche publishing, working with authors, developing manuscripts and addressing questions about writing and publishing.

“I’m looking forward to speaking to writers and book-enthusiasts at the Placerville library and explaining the ins-and-outs of book publishing from both a writer’s and publisher’s perspective,” Savas said.

Savas is the first of a series of guest speakers addressing the library’s writing group, The Writers Bloc, which meets the first Saturday of the month.
