Has your career stalled? Itching to try something new? Has your publisher   shut down its mystery line—or shut down entirely? Have they dropped you? Or are things going well, but you’re wondering if you could do better elsewhere?

The Chessie chapter of Sisters in Crime and the Mid-Atlantic chapter of Mystery Writers of America are co-hosting a workshop to help you make   the choices involved in reinvention: another traditional publisher, going indie, or  both? What pitfalls should you watch out for? How do you protect your legal rights? What about changing genres? Bestselling  authors and industry experts discuss what’s worked for them in a day-long program. Speakers include John Betancourt, Ken Budd, Tara Laskowski, Sujata Massey, Julie Moffett, Alan Orloff, Joanna Campbell Slan, Daniel Steven, and Marcia Talley.
