His work has been featured in Fast Company, Inc., Forbes, and Entrepreneur, and his ghostwritten books have been published by major houses, including HarperCollins, Simon & Schuster, Hachette, Wiley & Sons, St. Martin’s Press, and The MIT Press.

Tim has been in the book business full-time for 18 years. He is about to release his first non-ghosted book: Swipe, The Science Behind Why We Don’t Finish What We Start, co-written with organizational psychologist, university professor, and employee engagement expert Tracy Maylett.

And then there’s the behind-the-scenes look at the business of books: what happens once you have that beautifully written manuscript?

To make sure you get the most from your experience, space for this workshop is extremely limited. Don’t miss out Go directly to PayPal.  Do not pass “GO.” Our registration process is modeled after the “keep it simple, sweetie” school of thought — once you pay for your ticket, PayPal provides us your name and email address.
