September Brunch & Learn ... The Promotional Panorama for Authors


Saturday, September 21st ... 10 am to 1:45 with

Bonus Mastermind Session from 2 - 4:30   (as of 8/24-- there are only 5 spots left for the Bonus session)

The Promotional Panorama for Authors

Are you ready to promote your new book? Perhaps you don’t know what questions to ask or what promotional options are available to you. Author U and expert Literary Publicist Stephanie Barko have answers for you.

When it comes to promotion and publicity for authors and books, it’s easy to get lost and confused. Three questions usually pop up with authors around promotion and publicity.

1 What works and what doesn’t work for today’s author?
2 What works best for you and your book?
3 What will it cost?

This workshop surveys book promotion from the 50 foot level, exposing the author to a wide panorama of promotional elements.

You will learn the how and why of these elements in book promotion.

  • Blogging
  • Social Networking
  • Media Kits
  • Interviews
  • Trailers
  • Press Releases
  • Features
  • Live Events
  • Virtual Tours
  • Timelines

Writers will get a feel for what they might want to do themselves and what might best be delegated by listening to examples from real campaigns and comparing cost to benefit.

Participants will walk away with a general understanding of modern book promotion and a broad sense of direction for their specific project.


BONUS Session Stephanie is flying in from Austin, TX to present this amazing workshop, and will facilitate a deep-dive MasterMind for a limited number of attendees after brunch. Think of it as personalized laser coaching. Limited to 20.

Stephanie Barko, Literary Publicist was voted Preditors & Editors Best Book Promotion Service in 2011. Her award-winning clients include traditional publishers and their authors, small presses, and independently published writers.

    Stephanie Barko was a wealth of creative and practical information; the afternoon bonus session was true laser publicity coaching for each book. Hot!
