Successful book marketing takes two of three things: Time, Money, and Talent. If authors have time and talent, they don’t need money. Bethany Brown will share her valuable online marketing to-do list for self-published authors, including creating accounts on Author Central, Goodreads, Goodreads Giveaway, and LibraryThing, as well as Social Media and Review outreach and what those pitches should look like. Bethany's advice is appropriate for both self-publishing and traditionally published authors.

Next Door Cafe, 659 W Diversey (, is hosting this meeting. There is street parking in the area and public transportation nearby.
