The Premise

This event will be a guided intensive where all participants have the opportunity to practice what they’re learning under experienced team leaders. During these four days writers can expect:

  • classroom instruction time
  • private writing time
  • critique time

Your trail guides are bestselling authors DiAnn Mills and Lynette Eason. Through small group mentoring and one on one appointments with each instructor, we will answer questions, teach, and guide you through the adventure of novel writing.

Mountainside Retreats:

“The inaugural Mountainside Marketing Conference 2018 not only “showed” me how, but provided me the tools, the experience, the accountability and the strong group of supporters to carry out the journey of successfully getting my words out there. I would recommend this to anyone. It was inspirational, educational, emotional, with life lessons thrown in!”

“Mountainside Marketing Conference was amazingly professional, comprehensive, and… even fun for me, so inept with technology. So…besides the great overview of social media, the book launching session taught me what, why, where, when, and how to successfully launch a book. My book is a ship. I’ve christened at the Mountainside Marketing Conference. Now I’m ready to launch—not expecting all smooth sailing (after all, I wrote a Titanic novel!)—but I do expect to arrive at my destination: God’s port.”
