Dallas, TX, July 28, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Susan Mary Malone, (http://www.maloneeditorial.com/) developmental editor and published author, has concluded a successful speaking engagement at the Lexicon Writers Conference in Denton, Texas, north of Dallas. The conference was July 21-22 at the Best Western Premier and the Hilton Garden Inn.
The Lexicon Writers Conference was established to assist, promote and educate writers in all genres and fields, including fiction, non-fiction, screenplay writing, graphic novels and others. Published and unpublished writers attend, and one and all meet with established authors, literary agents, publishers, editors, and marketing experts.
Ms. Malone spoke on “The Arc of the Storyline.”
Ms. Malone stated, “I think writers’ conferences like the Lexicon Writers Conference are an important avenue for writers and aspiring writers to find out how the business works. Because of the emergence of self-publishing, many new writers today think it is very easy to put out something and be successful. Well it is easier than ever to put something out, but being successful is quite another story. It is still more important than ever to consult developmental editors, proofreaders, book cover designers, and other experts to ensure that you put out a great product. If you don’t put out something great, you will likely not be very successful. But with a lot of work and the right assistance, you can do it.”
