Your team members will leave the workshop with:

Sustainable Book Marketing for Indie Authors
Are you overwhelmed by conflicting advice about how to market and promote your books? Do you worry that you’re not doing the right things, or that you’re missing some magic formula? Or, do you spend so much time chasing book promotions and sales that there’s no time left to write the next book?
In this interactive workshop, we’ll look at what a sustainable book marketing strategy looks like for your specific situation. The workshop will combine insight into the indie publishing industry with a dash of cognitive science to help you identify a book marketing path that makes sense for you. You’ll leave with strategies and inspiration to build your long-term success as an author.
I offer small group workshops for nonfiction book authors (and prospective authors).
