Tucson Sisters in Crime Program for April 2021

Please join us at 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM April 17, 2021 via Zoom.



Almost everyone has heard of Andy Weir, who self-published  The Martian successfully, long before he sold it to a publisher and the book was made into a movie. But did you know Mark Twain, Virginia Wolf, Beatrix Potter, and Jane Austen also self-published novels?

Find out what self-publishing is, what skills you’ll need to learn, and whether you should do it. Elise Stone presents the “10,000 foot view” of Indie publishing today. Please be sure to bring your questions for the Question and Answer session at the end.

Elise M. Stone has written thirteen books in three series and is working on two more. Her most recent series is “ The Shipwreck Point Mysteries,” a historical cozy series that combines a bit of Perry Mason with a young Jessica Fletcher. Ms. Stone is published on  nearly every platform, tried most kinds of advertising and promotion, and spent uncountable hours listening to podcasts and watching writing videos.

Elise was born and raised in New York, went to college in Michigan, and lived in Boston for eight years. A dozen years ago, she moved to sunny Tucson where she doesn’t have to shovel snow. Agatha and Spenser, her two cats, allow her to share and apartment with them and keep her company while she writes.

Please join us at 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM APRIL 17, 2021 via Zoom.
