Book A Workshop

Promoting Your Own Book I (For Writers/Authors at All Stages in the Writing Process)

With over 750,000 books being published each year in the U.S. and over half of them by self-published authors, how does a author stand out above the rest? This workshop teaches authors how to choose the right book cover, develop a strong "Author PR Toolkit" (headshot, bio, book synopsis and website), how to choose the right book cover? What type of online presence authors need to have and where to sell their books. (90 mins.)


Promoting Your Own Book II (For Authors with a Published Book)

Attend this workshop to learn public relations strategies to increase your book sales. Topics include: how to get local media coverage, where to look for reading opportunities, how to develop/strengthen your brand and how to develop a strong author platform. (Workshop will include a five-minute book cover assessment). Attendees are encouraged to bring a printed copy of their book. (3 hrs.)
