Date: Wednesday, April 9
Time: 7 PM
Location: Watertown Savings Bank Room

Have you always wanted to be an author? Have you got some great material? Has everyone told you, “Hey, you should write a book?” Well, according to Ric Wasley, writing the book may actually be the easiest part of the process – it’s everything else that’s hard. It takes skill, tenacity and above all … marketing and communications. Join him in an interactive discussion of how to get major publishers to sit up and take notice of you.

Ric WasleyWasley, whose second novel, Shadow of Innocence, was released internationally this year, started out five years ago like so many would-be authors, with an idea for a story and a need to tell it. However, he found out along the way that it’s not enough to have a good idea; you’ve also got to find a way to get someone to listen to it. That takes skill, tenacity and above all … marketing and communications.

Wasley feels there are ways for authors to stack the deck a little more in their favor. Join him in an interactive discussion of not just the intricacies of structuring a plot and characters, but how to get major publishers to sit up and take notice of you. Just like Mick in his novel, Shadow of Innocence, Ric Wasley thrived on music in the sixties and performed as a folksinger and in rock several bands all over New England. He met the likes of Bob Dylan and Joan Baez.

Wasley has been writing for over 30 years. He has been published in several literary magazines in L.A. and San Francisco while living in California. Wasley has fond memories of living in Watertown but currently lives in a MetreoWest community with his wife and three children, works for a major media company and retains his love of music and writing.
