Authors: Learn How to Get Attention at Writers Project Runway III on April 1
Learn how to build a platform so your voice as an author is noticed and heard. Traditional publishers today increasingly ask authors to publicize their work and promote sales. Whether you have a book deal or not, publishers want authors with an established platform who will help promote their books. If you are self-published, the responsibility for publicizing your work rest squarely on your shoulders.
But how do you start and sustain your platform? Should you have a website? Or a mailing list? Do you need a Facebook page, a YouTube channel, a blog, and a Twitter feed? Should a news release be issued about your book? What will you say? How will you find time to write while juggling promotional outreach into your workload?
Hear Ami talk about where the rubber meets the road when it comes to public relations. Get practical advice on how to build your platform and share your writing with the world.
