Building Your Book's Buzz - Remote!
From organizing a book tour to generating publicity and coordinating reviews, this one-day workshop will focus on strategies and tips geared toward helping small press authors gain greater exposure and support for new books as the world continues to change in the pandemic era. The lecture will feature the benefits of grassroots marketing in connecting books to the right readers, naturally building buzz and momentum, while utilizing social media and opportunities often ignored in an ever-crowded marketplace.
This class will be hosted using live Zoom meetings! You will be able to participate in class via Zoom videoconference from wherever you’re most comfortable. All you’ll need is a laptop or a phone! About 15 minutes before your class is scheduled to begin, you'll receive an email from your instructor with a link to join the class meeting via Zoom–no need to download anything or sign up for Zoom in advance! If you have questions about remote learning, please feel free to reach out to [email protected] for more information.
