Writing a book can be a rewarding experience, especially if you’re writing about a topic you’re passionate about—for example, a book on SpriteKit. But wanting to write a book and actually doing so isn’t always easy.

In this talk, Tammy will discuss what it takes to go from book idea to book deal. She’ll draw on her experiences as an educator, author, and editor as she takes you on a journey through the world of publication. She’ll cover things like:

* The pros and cons of self-publishing.
* What it means to work with a traditional publisher, and why it *might* be better.
* Understanding what publishers look for in a proposal—and how to get yours signed.

But that’s not all. You’ll also learn how to become a better writer—and why your editor will appreciate it. You’ll discover what tools are available and how you can use them to improve your writing. You’ll even get a few tips on how to break through writer’s block.

So, what are you waiting for? That blinking cursor won’t go away on its own!
