From Idea to Author

So you have a brilliant idea for a book, now what? How you can get that book out of your head and onto the shelves of Joseph Beth? Coming up with an idea is the easy part. Writing the book can take months, even years. Getting it published? That could take an eternity. Do you have the great American novel burning in you? A biography of your Aunt Betty? Short stories that fly from your fingertips? Shaker Heights public library is hosting a local authors' fair this week. If those writers can do it, so can you. Find out how one goes from idea to published author. Friday at nine on the Sound of Ideas.
