Publishing 101 For Content Creators: From Decision To Market
It seems like every blogger and their grandmother has a book deal these days. You think, sure, I write for my blog, for other blogs and I bet I could do the same. There seem to be so many options – big publisher, small independent press, self publishing – that it’s hard to keep the end in mind.
This is a special 2-hour Super Workshop that will help you think about where a book would fit in with your personal brand message and platform. We’ll discuss everything it takes to get noticed and get published in today’s changing landscape.
We will help attendees understand what a publisher expects a prospective author to have in their platform and how to build it up, how to write a book proposal, and how to plan for the marketing and promotion of you book.
