Victoria Gail Oltarsh

Victoria Oltarsh is a native New Yorker who grew up playing in Central Park while visiting her grandparents who lived across the street. Now a mother and grandmother, she feels most comfortable in the delightful company of children. Victoria has spent her thirty-five-year career directing original and classical plays, teaching improv, story theater, and is a published lyricist on the song, “Lucky Charm,” produced by Grover Washington Jr.

Victoria is also a recipient of an individual artist grant from The Arts Council of Rockland. Her adaptations of classical fairy tales have been performed for students at school assembly programs by River Light Theater Adult Touring Company.

Whether as a teaching artist working for Arts in Ed agency in an underserved NYC public school, or teaching in private schools, summer programs, and art centers, Victoria loves to encourage children how to find their inner voice expressing themselves through the creative arts. Inspired by the universal wonder of the mystery of looking up at the stars, she is excited to share her space-fantasy adventure story with all.

I'm new to book authorship, how do I get started?
  • Begin by reading books on the subject you enjoy. Pay attention to the way they are written and the things you enjoy most about them. This will give you a head start on writing your own book.

Traditional, Subsidy or Multi-platform and Vanity Press publishing, what's the difference?
  • The differences between traditional and vanity press are soon obvious in the royalties you will earn. While the traditional house will typically pay 7–8% on paperback and 10% on hardback books, you will find the Multi-platform press, such as DocUmeant Publishing, will give a better percetage and provide services on demand. Finally the self-published author will pay all the fees, and hold all the rights. As a self-published author, you have to learn every step by yourself too. Either way you go, you must be willing to market your finished book.

What are some of the things that need to be budgeted for?
  • You need to look into all the factors that go into the creation of a book: printing, interior design, editing, cover design, bar code and that's just the beginning. Our DocUmeant Publishing Guide will help to answer this question and is available to you no strings attached.
