Promoting the Novel with Stephen Miller

What any seasoned author will tell you is that once the book is written and published, the real work begins! Internationally published author Stephen Miller knows this as well as anyone.

The author of six highly acclaimed novels, Stephen is also well known on the stage and screen and has looked at promotion from many angles.

His most recent novel, The Messenger, is a thriller set against a backdrop of international bioterrorism. It was published in the US and Canada mid-2012 and rights have been sold to Denmark, Spanish worldwide, Serbia, Poland and Israel. You can read more about Steve on his web site.

“Miller writes beautifully," says David Downing, author of Zoo Station and many other books, "is hugely well-informed on the subject of biological weaponry, and, more impressively still, manages to say something strikingly original about contemporary terrorism.  His American society – awash in meaningless commercialism, appalling inequalities, endemic racism and sexism – is the perfect target for his Middle Eastern anti-heroine’s dreadful mission.  Miller gets it that, in the widest context, the war on terrorism, like the war on drugs, is as much about us as it is about them. A chillingly intelligent read.”

Join us for an engaging evening talking about books and promotion with this internationally published author. As always, there will be a strong networking component to the evening and even those not currently planning a book will have the opportunity for networking with other authors and asking questions of our expert.

    I really wished I could have made it!!! I was so excited to go but I still had this lingering cough and didn't think I would make too many friends constantly interrupting with it:/ Sounds like it was as great as I thought gaging from all your comments! Hope there will be another one down the road:)

    Stephen's insights to the grit and pitfalls of the publishing industry, delivered with obvious passion, I know will prove to be an invaluable guide to any future success. It is always essential to confer with someone who has actually had a hand in it for as long as he has, to build a cogent strategy. Thank you for the opportunity to peer behind the curtain. The land of Oz seems less scary.

    nevertheless this did not spoil a very interesting meeting with an articulate and talented host. Thanks for organizing.

    Stephen is as sparkling in person as he is on the page. He was an interesting, engaged speaker and it was great to hear his insights. Thanks, Steve!

    Though we're taking on an advanced topic here, I'm not anticipating that this particular get-together will leave anyone feeling left out. If you're just starting out or still just working on your first book, there will be information for you here, too. What you'll discover (among other things): it's almost never to early to start promoting your book! And one of the places where most first-time authors fall down is by not realizing just how much will be expected of them in the way of promotion, even (and sometimes especially!) when published by a large press.
