Bio: Author Dana Marton used skills learned at her corporate job to get published and stay published. In the past five years she's sold 25 books (without an agent) that are published in over a dozen countries in many languages—one has been even published in Japan as a graphic novel. She's a Rita finalist and the winner of the Daphne du Maurier Award of Excellence. And it all started with a little project management. You can find out more about Dana and her books on her web site: www.danamarton.com

Note: Lessons will be posted on Sep. 6, 13, 20 and 27, including homework. In between, I’d like to discuss homework assignments and address any questions. I’m in Europe in a different time zone, so I might not answer all posts right away, but I’ll strive to answer all of them within a reasonable amount of time.

If you can, please friend me on Facebook and or follow me on Twitter. I promise to friend/follow you back. One of the things we’ll discuss is networking. It’s never too early to start!
