Have You Chosen to Miss Out?   … Last Chance to Sign Up

This Saturday’s Author U BookCamp, Creating and Harvesting Your Internet Book Launch and Book Blog Tour is specially designed to take you to the next, next level in your book marketing strategy.

Should you use the Internet to market your book? Absolutely. Should you encompass the scatter/BB gun approach that most authors use? Absolutely not.

Saturday is about MARKETING YOUR BOOK. Period.

In the Morning …
Judith Briles
has immersed herself in the authoring and publishing worlds for the past three decades—what will she show you that you don’t already know/practice? Authoring and publishing is all about change and the author/publishers. The good news is that pBooks are not going away (August 2011 pBook sales are up 11% over August of 2010); the good news is that eBooks are here. Authors have tremendous opportunities to pitch and promote their books. The AM session is all about creating a launch for your new, or not-so-new book. It will incorporate the use of the top social media platforms.

Think Snappy, Sassy and Salty—it’s what you will be working through in the exercises created to game plan your Book (P or E) Launch for the 21st Century. Hot Seats throughout her session.

In the Afternoon …
Shannon Parish
created the mini-website that was specifically designed to launch Judith Briles’ book, Show Me About Book Publishing last spring. It sold over 500 books within two days, putting it in the Kindle and Amazon stores best-seller lists—not to mention creating revenues—hard cash revenues. The website had components … you will see how they were put together and learn how to create the copy to make yours sing. Your Book Launch site is not your primary website.

You will create your copy and know exactly what and who you need to have on your website. Hot Seats throughout Shannon’s session.

Mara Purl is an expert in Book Blog Tours. Crafting hers that within one month, put her name, her book, What the Heart Knows, and created the demand for the entire first printing of 3,000 books to be shipped to book stores … and oh, yes, the potential to be in front of 17 million readers. Should you do a Book Blog Tour? The real question is, why wouldn’t you?

You will learn what she did and how to create your own amazing Book Blog Tour. Hot Seats throughout Mara’s session.

Who should attend? Published and unpublished authors. If your book is in the creation stage, you will come away with ideas to support its structure and development.

Registration and Continental Breakfast at 8.30—AM session starts at 9. Lunch and Workbook included—your book changing day ends at 4.
