Check Out WINFIN 2011’s Expert Bloggers and Special Features

At long last I’m ready to reveal to you the list of 2012 WNFIN expert bloggers and some additional special features you can take advantage of this year as a participant.

I already told you about the book giveaway contest. I’ll be choosing someone who plans on writing a complete book manuscript in 30 days to win a copy of Rochelle Melander’s just-released book, Write-a-Thon, Write a Book in 26 Days (And Live to Tell About It). You can find all the details of the contest here, and you have until Nov. 1 at noon to participate.

Additionally, for the first time in WNFIN’s five year history, I’ll be offering FREE teleseminars. That’s right…learn even more from some of my experts. The first teleseminar kicks off the challenge on November 1 at 7:00 PM EDT/4 PM PDT when I will interview Roger C. Parker, author of 41 business and how-to books. Parker’s membership program, Published & Profitable, helps authors successfully write and publish their own books using his do-it-yourself writing resources like checklists, worksheets, and workbooks. The topic for the first WNFIN teleseminar will be 7 Time-Management Tips for Completing Your Book During November—an appropriate one for all those WNFIN participants trying to meet their November deadline. To learn more about the call and to register, click here.
