What Authors Can Learn from Tech Startups
We've been doing a lot of craft this year. Time for some marketing wisdom!! Evan Gow is the indie developer behind StoryOrigin, a marketing tool that helps self-published authors build their newsletter audience. Prior to StoryOrigin, Evan worked in investment banking and private equity. He's much happier now that he gets to combine his passion for writing and programming through his work on StoryOrigin. In this talk, Evan will go over some of the principle marketing frameworks that tech startups use and show how they can be applied in the self-publishing world. Then he will also go over how you can turn those marketing frameworks into an actionable book launch checklist.

What we're about



Are you a writer, author, or blogger?

Are you interested in self-publishing a book?

Are you interested in finding an audience for your fiction or nonfiction?

If you answered yes to any of those questions, you've come to the right place.

Join a group of indie authors twice a month to learn, discover, and create.

We talk about the craft of writing; how to find and work with an editor; how to format and distribute your books; trends in indie publishing; marketing tactics; platform and strategy; the leaders of self publishing in the 21st century; and much more.

Each meeting is structured around a specific topic, but there is always time for your questions, and a little chit chat over coffee too.

All indie authors, artists, wannabes, hacks, storytellers, and yarn-spinners welcome.

No experience necessary, but come prepared.
