1. Pulling off an idea for a book (Nite)
All books begin as an idea, but many ‘ideas’ never make it onto paper because to ‘write’ a book is daunting for many.

Taught by professional writers and sponsored by Glorybound Christian Writer’s Assn.
2. Let’s make some book covers (Nite)

8. Selecting the Best Book Binding (for your book)

Many books are greatly improved with the addition of pictures or drawings. We will review different types of art used in books which are printed and books which are exclusively digital (e-books).

10. Manuscript to Publication (Nite)
The process of bringing a manuscript to become a book is mysterious and fogged by many attempting to take advantage of those with dreams emptying their wallet quickly providing minimal information. Let’s cut through the fog bank. Do you want to know what is essential VS optional? You are welcome to bring your manuscript. Class welcomes teen writers. Taught by professional writers and sponsored by Glorybound Christian Writer’s Assn.
11. Security in Publication (Print and on-line) (Nite)

If you have a burning in your chest that won’t let you rest; your soul is starving. And, you have been so long without food that you have looked for other things to eat. But, what they fed you is the cardboard box instead of the Cheerios.
And, you look at them, chewing on their own cardboard with plastic smiles on their faces and wonder, “Certainly, they know?” For, they are filled, but not satisfied.
And, if you find you are surrounded with good things; if you have a nice family, decent job and comfortable living conditions, yet are miserable, this is for you.
Conference classes are hosted by Glorybound Publishing and Sheri Hauser -author of spiritual Dream Books which teach on the Holy Spirit and hearing the voice of God for yourself. The Father wants His children to hear and understand His voice...and He is talking. Join us to learn to listen.

I keep praying that the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you..and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of is mighty strength, which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead... Eph 1.17ff
