  • Writers write books, but how are these books marketed? Whether traditionally published or self-published, a writer needs to understand their role in author marketing. An author's role has been redefined in the past few years. Once the creative side of writing is done, are authors ready for business? This Author Marketing class helps minimize author frustrations in the book business by reviewing:

    • Latest tools and strategies for authors in a digital world

    • Emerging technology affecting publishing trends

    • Qualities of best-selling authors

    • How, where, and when to acquire book reviews

    • Ways to generate appropriate media contact lists and how to contact the media

    This class is taught by Tara Lynne Groth. Tara Lynne is the founder of Asheville Writers. She is a full-time freelancer, a former marketing manager, and speaks at author events around the country on the best writing practices for the web.

    Class fee $55 also includes brunch, drink, and dessert.

    Registration closes 7 days before event.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
