Mike White, owner of local publisher, Ghost River Images, will talk about current aspects of e-book publishing: the economics of it, how to do it, and whether you should. In the current market when the big publishing houses are in financial trouble, self-publishing and e-publishing are increasing. However, most authors don’t want to be bogged down with the details of publishing and that’s why they hire Ghost River Images. Visit their website at www.ghostriverimages.com. Mike also conducts classes at Pima college.
Clark Lohr will speak on Using Film to Learn Structure and Plotting. He will explain Syd Field’s model for story structure as set forth in Screenplay: The Foundations of Screenwriting. We will then watch part of a classic crime film, stopping the action to ask ourselves questions about the plot, the action, and the use of characters. We’ll guess where the story is headed and challenge ourselves to invent outcomes. Clark has a BA in Literature and Writing. His latest crime novel, Devil’s Kitchen, was published by Oak Tree Press in 2011.
