This workshop is for anyone who is writing a first or second book. We’ll look at what authors learn in their first book process that they do better with for their second book. I’ll share the challenges and expectations of a first book and the differences I’ve seen with authors between their first and second books. We’ll look at what we can learn from second-time authors and mistakes writers can avoid. And we’ll uncover how authors can set themselves up for success by pinpointing what could be done the next time around.

Blythe Daniel, founder and literary agent at The Blythe Daniel Agency and author, looks at what authors learn in their first book process that they improve in their second book. Through personal experiences, practical ideas and Q & A, Blythe will help you to:

  • Meet the challenges and expectations of a first book with greater insight.
  • Learn from the mistakes of other authors and soften the blows of disappointments that come and how to move forward
  • Pinpoint how to set yourself up for success the second time around no matter your experience

Hermeneutics isn’t typically a word that comes to mind when we think of Christian writers and speakers, but it certainly should be. Many times, we have neglected the call to the ardent study of The Word before we venture in to sharing a message with God’s people. There is an immense responsibility, as Christian communicators, to share the whole counsel of God- not only the small portions that we have sliced away from their original meaning and context. Even as well-meaning writers and speakers, we can miss God- and subsequently miss sharing Him with our audience. This break out session will cover basic biblical interpretation methods, resources, and instruction on infusing these skills into writing and speaking.

What is your greatest need? What obstacles or opportunities are overwhelming you? For reasons or seasons, speakers and writers may need to enlist others to “lift them” in practical, tangible ways, so they can stay focused and energized. Whether it’s meals for your family while you’re away speaking, advice about a blog post or book proposal, administrative or organizational support, or more strategic help when an unexpected crisis occurs, God has unlimited resources and people to support you, if you are willing to receive. Come share your greatest need and leave with a creative next step to enlist your support team of Leaderlifters to help you.
