 Michael C. Grumley Workshop

HE-E-E-S  BA-A-A-CK! by popular demand

Self-made bestselling author, Michael Grumley, blew our members’ minds in August when he showed how his Breakthrough series lifted him into the lofty world of top-selling authors on Amazon. His five-year plan brought him to a current income of $50,000 per month. That’s no typo.

Michael was never published by a traditional publisher. He never had an agent.

Think he might have something important to tell us?

What worked for him? What didn’t?

Michael will conduct an all-day workshop to share his step-by-step strategy and to give specific advice on how to improve book sales in the most effective ways.

We’ll start during our regular monthly meeting from 10 AM to noon. This session is free and open to the public. The afternoon session will start at 1 PM and will go to 4:30 PM.

Registration fees for the afternoon session:

$30 for HSW members; $50 for non-members, which includes the annual membership for 2019.
