Social media and blogging are great ways to get the word out about your book in order to gather followers and build your author platform before, during, and after your book's release. Learning how to blog, share, post, and tweet specifically for book marketing purposes can be a lot easier when you have a pro like Sue Koch to show you the ropes.

Join us on Thursday, August 22 to learn about social media and blogging for authors, including:

How to create blogging and social media strategies to strengthen your author platform How to determine which social media site(s) your readers are using The importance of blogging and guest blogging in marketing your book I have created a short, anonymous online survey to help Sue tailor her presentation to the group's needs. This is your chance to tell Sue what you'd most like to know about social media and blogging for authors. The survey is only eight questions, most of which are multiple choice, and shouldn't take more than a minute or two of your time.

Please click the link to go to the survey page:

If you're not able to attend this meeting, it would still be very helpful if you'd fill out the survey.

After the meeting we'll adjourn to a nearby restaurant and we'd love to have you join us so we can continue the conversation.

Hope to see you on August 22!
