So You Want to Write a Book Authoring and Publishing in the 21st Century

AMCHAM hosted a lunch on the 07th October 2019 at Cercle Munster on the theme of

“Ever wanted to write your own book? Don’t know where to start?“ with guest speaker Susan Alexander.

It was a lively conversation with a fully booked event, with slide shows and good humour.

Susan Alexander, who at last count has published seventeen books, as well as short stories, magazine articles and research reports, will talk about:

  • Getting the book written
  • Fiction vs non-fiction
  • Getting the manuscript in shape
  • Mediated vs self-publishing
  • Getting the book read.

A native New Yorker, Susan Alexander lives in Luxembourg, where she writes and undertakes research on public policy and the social sciences. She has had a non-linear career path that includes being a professional musician, an ordained Protestant clergyman, a Vice President in charge of derivative, fixed income and international market research on Wall Street, the head of a web site and Internet application development company, and the founder of her own independent research firm. She has degrees from Wellesley College, Princeton Seminary and, most recently, a PhD in Organizational Systems.

Susan enjoys writing about women who have led complex and interesting lives, their relationships and the choices they have made. It frequently happens that there is some murder and mayhem involved in as well.
