 Apr 10, 2017

The Professional LDS Storytellers Workshop is the first of it's kind. Session 6 may be the most valuable yet!

Greetings Tennis Shoes Fans!

Let's face it. The storytelling, novel-writing, book-publishing business is a vast, complex, and forever changing morass these days.

I  knew going in that I could never cover everything that Chris Heimerdinger, Author and Lecturerneeded to be covered in one session. That's why I've already recorded two additional sessions on this topic! They're just not posted yet.  


Doesn't matter if you want to supplement your income to write full-time or part-time. These are many of the secrets you must know. Session 6 hits the ground running with the most essential information, as well as rarely-discussed gems:
