C.A.L.L. class helping writers publish & market their literary endeavors on March 20

APACHE JUNCTION, Ariz. – Marketing and publishing a work of fiction may be as daunting a task for a burgeoning writer as scripting the opening paragraph of that first chapter.

On Saturday, March 20, the Central Arizona College Lifelong Learners (C.A.L.L.) program is offering a chance to perform all three.

Writing, Publishing & Marketing Your First (or 7th) Book will be held in Room 444 of CAC’s Superstition Mountain Campus from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. The cost of the class is $50 for C.A.L.L. members and $75 for non-members.

The non-credit class will be led by veteran writer Bobbie Christensen, a California native who has authored 12 books, including several award-winners and best-sellers.

“An average of 80 percent of all books in bookstores today are self-published,” Christensen explained. “You should not have to pay money to a publisher. Many people don’t realize that Mark Twain was a self-published author.”

Christensen’s lineup of books include:

  • Building Your Financial Portfolio On $25 A Month
  • Top 50 Best Stock Investments
  • Building Your Dream Life: Career, Sex & Leisure
  • Retiring Healthy, Wealthy & Wise
  • The Banker Chronicles – a fictional mystery

“The United States is the only country in the world where anyone can publish a book without getting government approval,” Christensen stated, citing a fact few people know. “And the best-sellers displayed at the front of bookstores are paid positions that are not related to sales.”
