How do you sign up?
First step would be to join the forum, Silver Net. Then email me, Tina@liquidsilverbooks.com with the title of the workshop in the subject line. In the email please include your Name, Author name (if you have one), email address and publishing experience.
What if I don’t sign up before the deadline?
I made deadlines so we’ll know prior to the workshop the head count of people participating, but if you were unable to email prior to the deadline, go ahead and send me an email including the information requested above. We’ll do our best to fit you in.
What if I’m out of town or can’t make one of the workshops?
All workshops are being held on Silver Net, so the teachings and comments will be available at any time, you’ll just miss out on the participation aspect.
What do the asterisks mean in the intro paragraph?
* While we welcome authors from any publisher to participate, please keep in mind that some of the techniques and philosophies we teach could be specific to Liquid Silver Books, not the industry as a whole.
**In order to post on the forum, you must be logged in as a member. Please make sure you enter a valid email address when you sign up, this will ensure your registration completes. One thing we do require is that you enter your birthdate, this is a legal requirement in the US to comply with COPPA. The purpose is to prevent children under-13 from accessing the board.
[A tip for people who are likely to return: tick the “Remember Me” box when logging on and don’t log out when leaving. This will have you auto-login next time you visit SiN.]
