The reason most of us gravitated to this Meetup Group is that as authors we find ourselves in the odd position of having to be marketing experts to create a successful book campaign.
In the past this group was all about guest speakers and social events. As the new organizers, we propose a major paradigm shift in that focus. It's great to have speakers and enjoy a lunch or dinner venue from time to time, but those events are not always the most productive and did not support the continuation of this group.
We will still have guest speakers but most meetings will be conducted virtual in online Video Conferencing Webinars. We will also schedule working sessions where we can critique each others marketing materials and help each other find better ways to promote our work.
We have a website http://tbwpm.com (http://tbwpm.com/) and will also have social media for the group on Facebook and Twitter. The group will be open to all writers regardless of where they live or what they write and we will provide free and valuable information to all about the business of marketing our work.
