I'm very excited to be moderating a writer's panel at IWOSC next Monday on writing health & wellness. It's a field I've been working in since I started editing over 25 years ago, and this market has continued to be popular with readers.

My panel of experts will share their hard-earned insights and tips for success.

The night's dynamic speakers are:

Emily Dwass, the author of the forthcoming book, Diagnosis Female, scheduled to be published in Fall 2019 by the leading indie publisher, Rowman & Littlefield. She's a great example of how building a track record of success with articles can help you get published the traditional way.

Derek Doepker, the self-published author of over six best-selling books in health, self-help, and authorship. In addition to being a prolific writer, he's one smart marketer in the self-publishing arena, and he will share some of his techniques.

Jerri Sher, an Emmy-Award-winning wellness filmmaker in production of Quiet Explosions, a documentary feature about TBI, traumatic brain injury, and PTS, post-traumatic stress, in veterans and athletes. This Golden Year of the Documentary is a great time to learn about this market.

Steve Hutson, a literary agent and founder of WordWise Media Services. Steve is a writer himself so to me that makes him extra special as a scribe's rep.

I'll be moderating, and I'll also share my story of how I got into the fields of editing health books and later ghostwriting health titles for experts.

A little background on me...  Robin Quinn has been in the book biz for more than two and a half decades. She is an award-winning book editor, book coach and ghostwriter. Robin specializes in self-help, health, nutrition, spirituality, business, and the media, and she also works with uplifting memoir and fiction. Her book projects include Patricia Fitzgerald’s small press best-seller The Detox Solution, Susan Moss’s alternative health title Survive Cancer! and Ruth Frechman’s The Food Is My Friend Diet (Best Nutrition book / Indie Excellence Awards). Since the early 90s, Robin has produced and moderated panels related to books and writing – for such groups as the Independent Writers of Southern California (IWOSC), Publishers Association of Los Angeles (PALA), Greater Los Angeles Writers Society (GLAWS), Author’s Corner, and more.
