Navigating the wild world of publishing at the library

By From page B3 | May 21, 2014

Calling all book lovers, writers and dreamers. Have you ever wondered how to get a book published?

Author Erin Dealey offers tips and tricks on “Navigating the Wild World of Publishing” at 1 p.m. on Saturday, June 7 at the El Dorado County Library, 345 Fair Lane in Placerville.

Dealey is a traditionally published author, former high school teacher and head of the theater department of Sugarloaf Fine Arts camp.

She has published picture books “Goldie Locks has Chicken Pox,” “Deck the Walls: a wacky Christmas carol” and many more.

She is currently revising a middle-grades novel and would be done a whole lot faster if picture books would stop popping into her head.

Dealey’s manuscripts went from languishing in the slush pile, to having an agent find publishers for them. In an effort to share with the world what she has learned, Dealey helps budding writers through articles, writer’s workshops and school assemblies.

She is one of a series of guest authors addressing the library’s writing group, The Writers’ Bloc, which meets the first Saturday of every month.
