July 6, 2013: Write Your Book Marketing Plan
Publishing is a competitive industry and you have to make your book stand out from all the others. A sound and sensible book marketing plan is just as important as the writing, design, and publication of the manuscript – no matter how wonderful your book is, it will not sell itself… and it is highly unlikely that your book will jump off bookstore shelves without some help.
Kathy Spiess’ presentation of Write Your Book Marketing Plan will guide you through writing your book-marketing plan; it will give you information on self-publishing, pricing, finding unique marketing avenues, book-signings and promotions.
