On Saturday I attended an engaging "Getting Published" workshop with author Michael Tougias and publicist Alison O'Leary. I recently had the pleasure of attending Michael's presentation, "King Philip's War in New England," at the New England Regional Genealogical Consortium (NERGC) Conference in Providence where I learned of the upcoming workshop. Michael and Alison presented and discussed various approaches to publishing one's written work and offered their own years of experience to assist and guide those who are new to the publishing arena. Michael Tougias is a successful author who has published over twenty books. His recent book, The Finest Hours, co-authored with Casey Sherman, has been produced by Disney Corporation into a movie version which is scheduled for release to theaters in January 2016. Alison O'Leary is a successful freelance editor, writer and publicist. I wish to thank Michael and Alison for a fantastic workshop and for sharing so much of their knowledge. I also wish to thank all of the participants of the workshop who shared their experiences and insights with the group.
