So You Want to Write a Story_flyer_June2012Given the current state of the publishing industry, authors are faced with the daunting task of marketing their books. Besides the social media, your website, and ebook sites, you can reach out to the community and offer programs that integrate your books in a way that enables the participants to walk away with something besides your book which they paid for. They win, and you win by acquiring an audience, and hopefully selling a book.
Here are some of the programs offered by me, or by me and another author I work with, Karen, http://www.whaleislandstories.wordpress.com. If you are interested in more details about any of these programs, contact Linda at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Karen at email@example.com.
