Learn the publishing business from a bestselling author

I'm sure we've all read Stephen King's On Writing and have also read numerous books on the craft.  But what if you could watch a bestselling author actually teach the nuts-and-bolts of writing AND the publishing side from a business perspective.

Have no fear!  Brandon Sanderson is here!

For those few who may not know, Brandon finished off Robert Jordan's Wheel Of Time series after Mr. Jordan's untimely death years ago.  He is also an accomplished fantasy author on his own series, starting with the Stormlight Archives Book 1: The Way of Kings--I highly recommend it for those fantasy lovers out there.

Brandon is also a college professor, and on a video series at Write About, you get to see him in action.  There are two such video series, one from 2012 and one from 2013.  There are 13 lessons on each, and he covers a variety of topics.

Check out the YouTube channel: Write About Dragons.  I can't recommend it enough.  For help with brainstorming ideas, writing first drafts, editing, and even various aspects of the publishing business, you get it all here.
