Whether you are traditionally or self-publishing your book, there are very intentional strategies every author needs to know to make their book marketable.

Your stories can impact the world, one heart at a time!
Join Sandi Banks for this interactive, inspiring, informative workshop. Here you will learn key elements for effectively writing devotions, then getting them into the publishers’ hands and the readers’ hearts. What’s so intriguing and rewarding about devotional writing? It communicates truth, heart-to-heart, and points the reader upward for encouragement and connection with God—all in a five-minute-or-less read. Sandi defines devotional writing as a “nugget of truth, wrapped in a story, immersed in insight, served with grace.” Come discover what that means, and how God can use your gifts and experiences to honor Him and offer hope to a hurting world.

Communication that produces change happens when we apply the truth of God’s word to people’s lives. Today in ministry, we must be prepared to share the truth of Scripture to a culture that has gone digital. This interactive workshop will demonstrate the use of Logos Bible Software for effective speaking preparation, writing research, and personal Bible study. What normally takes five to 10 hours of flipping through paper books for speaking prep and Bible study can be done in seconds – and the depth of study is unparalleled! Logos 8 gives you access to your entire biblical library wherever you are because it is compatible with Mac®, PC, iPad®, iPhone® and Android™ – this ease of use and power of Logos will be clearly taught and demonstrated.

This practical workshop will give you all the tool you need to choose the right equipment on a shoestring budget, determine your hosting platform, get listed on ITunes, all the way to creating content that moves people and batching work. Allow Lee Nienhuis, host of the wildly popular, Moms in Prayer Podcast help you decide if a podcast is the right step for connecting with your audience!
