This workshop is a reprisal of Bolen’s popular presentation from the RWA national conference in New York. In it she will explain how much more lucrative it is for an author to take charge of his or her own foreign translations instead of letting an agency take a huge chunk of that money. She will discuss when it’s advisable to do a royalty split with translators vs. paying them outright, which markets are more profitable, and she will thoroughly explain the process of hiring and managing your own translators.
After selling 11 books to major publishers, <a href=”https://www.cherylbolen.com/” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Cheryl Bolen</a> tossed five backlist titles into the cyberspace of indie publishing in 2011 and found her publishing sweet spot. Thirty more indie books have followed, many of them number one sellers in historical romance. Since going indie, she landed on the New York Times bestseller list and has had several books that were USA Today bestsellers. She spent more than two years as a Top 20 Regency author on Amazon, and she’s had two months in which her earnings topped $25,000. Before she sold her first book in 1997, she enjoyed careers as a journalist and an English teacher. She holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Texas and a master’s from the University of Houston.
