    Writing Secrets Seminar


    2010 - 01.23

    What does it take to become a professional in the field of writing fiction? For more than 15 years Kevin J. Anderson & I have given all-too-brief workshops on the subject. And each year we get countless requests to offer more extensive teaching sessions.

    Now Kevin and I are teaming with three other international bestselling authors—Eric Flint, David Farland (Dave Wolverton), and Brandon Sanderson—to present a full curriculum of talks and panels during a three-day weekend event on crucial aspects of being a professional writer.

    Dates:  March 19-21, 2010
    Location:  Pasadena Convention Center, Pasadena, California
    Event:  An in-depth, no-nonsense, nuts & bolts seminar for serious writers, whether aspiring or already published, who want to take their careers to a new level
    Opportunity:  On March 20, we’re holding an optional “special access” dinner with all five authors in an upscale restaurant in Pasadena (limit of 25 paid participants; see website for details)

    Differentiation and Branding

    Okay, I’ve gotten this from two sources now in two weeks.

    Here it is: I’m not on *anyone’s* radar screen as far as name-recognition goes. That’s right — I pretty much don’t exist.

    People who are familiar with Kevin J Anderson apparently know that he has a wife whose name appears on some of the books he writes, mostly the YA ones. But they don’t know who Rebecca Moesta is. My (Kevin’s and my) publicist tells me that I need rebeccamoesta.com to be my own page, not a pointer to the mostly-Kevin-with-Rebecca-thrown-in site. Will this accomplish anything? Who would go there, and why? Other than a list of my books (88% written with Kevin), what would I include??

    Need the help of both pros and fans here. Comments?

    Anonymously yours, Rebecca
