    Guy Kawasaki drops a lot of money into advertising. So I've always been a little hesitant about his book. However, I know a lot of self-publishers who hold it in high esteem, and this ebook edition is free: http://www.bookbaby.com/free-guide/ape-guide Would love to hear others thoughts on it.

      Yeah, I love Killer Nashville, but I'm beat and have to go to work Monday on top of it all. Thanks for posting something on my blog. I got a laugh out of your comment on family. You have a good sense of humor.

    Sorry I had to miss this. House hunting & got caught up.

  • Andrew

    En route. But I'll be 10 minutes late

    I'm so sorry...but I can't make the meeting after all. I hope next month works better for me. Have fun!

  • Jennifer K

    I'm sorry, I'm caught up with work so I can't make it after all tonight. Hope to be there next time!

  • Nancy S.

    I can't come tonight. My daughter is going back to college tomorrow and we have to pack.

    And me being there won't make us look extra crazy?

    August 22, 2014

    • Iscah

      No, only half as crazy.

  • Iscah

    I will likely be heading over early around 4pm or so to reserve us enough tables in the back corner. If anyone wants to join me, they're welcome. I will mostly be sitting quietly and editing. Panera is used to me/us, but I look like less of a crazy person if other people are sitting with me.

    I wish I were there to share what I learned from writing and marketing my own book. One thought: start marketing the minute you start writing.

      For time critical non-fiction yes. I'm less convinced this is a good strategy for other genres. Product first.

      August 21, 2014

    • Jennifer K

      I would be interested in hearing more thoughts on this though. I was immediately intrigued reading this and wonder about pros and cons on both sides.

  • Drew

    Sadly I have to bow out this month. Look forward to the next one.

    This won't be our focus, but I found a good article on generating traffic for crowdfunding. Some of it is applicable to generating traffic for other things too: http://www.johnathanleow.com/how-i-made-106830-on-indiegogo-with-this-traffic-generation-strategy/

    I was going to go and then realized I'll be at Killer Nashville. Darn. Too many things going on and not enough time. See you at the next one.

    I've written three novels, with my most recent Lubricated Condoms, released just this Monday...however I am a neophyte when it comes to marketing. I'm really looking forward to this discussion.

    August 5, 2014

  • Jennifer K

    Iscah, is this going to focus on different things than the thing on crowd funding/marketing?

    August 5, 2014

    • Iscah

      Yes, I think I'm going to make this month open topic, since we kind of ended up with a class last time.
