Join Me on Eventbrite for a Fabulous Event!

What publishers want! What you need to know before submitting your manuscript for consideration.

Are you an aspiring author or writer with questions about the submission process for publishers? Sure, most publisher guidelines can be found online, but there are certain secret (and not so secret) ways to get your work read rather than sent to the slush pile or recycling bin. Publisher and author Lacey L. Bakker (Chicken Soup for the Soul, Women’s World Magazine, Best Health Magazine, Orlando Voyager Magazine, Canvas Rebel Magazine, etc.) has insider tips to help! She knows exactly what publishers want and can help you figure out why your work may be getting rejected and what steps you can take to improve your submissions. Lacey has published 85 books to date (in all genres), and her award-winning authors have been on the best-seller list multiple times! They have been featured in publications such as CHCH News, Hamilton Spectator, The Huffington Post, The Globe and Mail, FOX News, Breakfast Television, PopSugar, and Today’s Parent, with more media appearances being added all the time!

Join us on Saturday, February 25th, from 7 pm EST to 8 pm EST on Zoom for this live event; tickets are $20, and space is limited to 30 attendees. Get your tickets today and join in the live Q&A! Hope to see you there.

Tim Ford is who we’re shining the spotlight on today! Tim won best local author for the Hamilton Spec and is a heck of a writer. He’s got a very loyal fanbase of readers who are always excited for his next books and they come out in droves to support him at his book launches. We’re so happy Tim is on our team, and we thoroughly enjoy his rated-R books in the Mitch Strongbow series! His writing makes you feel like you’re seated directly beside the main character, which can be terrifying at times. Check out Tim’s series of books here, and get ready for his next book, The Ghosts that Haunt Me book 10 in the Mitch Strongbow series coming March 2023.

Here’s more about Tim: My name is Tim Ford, and I am an award-winning writer. Married father of two daughters, and Pappy (yes, grandpa sounds old) to 3 wonderful grandchildren. I am a retired steel worker of 35 years now, same as my father. Honest, hard-working profession. I’ve worked shifts for 43 years, and yes, I prefer nights. As a writer, I have more detailed thoughts and flow come to me. Sports enthusiast and gym rat. Music is my fav drug, soothes the savage soul, massages and resets my brain, even when the world around me is going mad. And writing, that is truly my great escape from reality. I feel so alive, almost euphoric.  I also have a chronic joint disease called Ankylosing Spondylitis. Regardless of the pain with a flair-up,  I will have a book thought, put on my music, and once my fingers touch the keyboard, my pain goes away.
