Guest Speaker: Cheri Cowell

Marketing into Ministry

No one wants to hear about you and your book after the third week of your book’s release, so how do you market your book without talking about your book? Come learn the proven strategy that turns marketing into ministry AND that sells books.

Reprints, Rights, and Rewrites—Getting Mileage out of Your Work

It takes twice as long and ten times the energy to write a new piece than to rework and resubmit that piece again and again. Learn how to get more mileage out of your work in this chock-full-of-tips-and-tricks class.

As an author and sidewalk theologian, Cheri Cowell writes and speaks from a refreshing vulnerability about her own struggles with the deep questions of faith. As a graduate of Asbury Theological Seminary she shares her passion to help others apply biblical principles to the sidewalk issues of life. In 2009 Cheri was chosen as one of six Christian journalists for a trip to the Holy Land, a trip that foundationally changed her life. Cheri draws upon her nearly 32 years in both professional and lay Christian ministry in her writing, speaking, and teaching. Below you will also learn about a few of the other ways Cheri serves the Kingdom of God.

Cheri Cowell, Owner and Publisher of EABooks Publishing, is passionate about helping others see God’s Word come alive, and she is excited to expand that mission by helping fellow authors take advantage of the new publishing trends. Says, Cheri, “Whether your vision is e-books, print, or audiobooks, we can help you expand your reach with the message God gave you.” Cheri maintains a busy schedule teaching at Christian Writers’ Conferences.

Guest Speakers

Jennifer Henn –  Writing Prescriptive Nonfiction: write a rewarding how-to article or book to help your readers

 Blog post and devotionals inspire, but prescriptive nonfiction teaches. Jennifer will cover the components of prescriptive nonfiction including: what structure to use, titles and subheads, and the use of interactive elements. Sit in on this class and begin to see how you can take articles you’ve already written, and repurpose them into a how-to guide.

Jennifer serves the homeschool community through conferences and writing. She shares how you can teach your children at home, while enjoying the freedom to explore their individual interests. Her first book, Take the Mystery Out of Homeschooling: A How-To Guide, takes parents incrementally through the basics of homeschooling and offers practical advice so they can make informed decisions.

Jennifer and her husband live in Metro Atlanta where their nest is down to one chick. When not helping homeschoolers, she is the secretary for Christian Authors Guild, writer and online connections group leader for Wholly Loved Ministries, a member of Word Weavers Intl, and serves on the mission’s assessment team at her local church.

Cynthia L. Simmons will do coaching, 15 min for $10. This will take place after the event. Add your name to the list before the slots are all gone.

Cynthia L. Simmons is the mother of five and past president of Christian Authors Guild. She hosts Heart of the Matter Radio each week and encourages women who seek the elegance of God’s wisdom. A certified writing and media coach, Simmons conducts writing workshops and serves as Christian Authors Network regional coordinator for Munce Group Christian Book stores. In 2008 she was nominated for Georgia Author of the Year and speaks at events nationwide.

“Cyndi” is fond of history and writes both historical fiction and nonfiction. She writes for Leading Hearts Magazine and Old School House Magazine. Combining history and Scripture, she ministers to women of all ages, but has a special place in her heart for young mothers and homeschool mothers.

  1. As much as I’d rather meet in person I’m excited about the webinar. Have just met Cheri Cowell via phone and may use her company to publish my book through. I think she’s going to be an amazing speaker and look forward to hearing her and Jennifer Henn.
