It’s a jammed-packed day with five extraordinary experts in a variety of areas—all areas every author should be snapping, crackling, popping with for author and book success. Get ready to learn and implement new strategies and tools with:

Judith Briles
Whether an author publishes with a traditional publisher, an indie or self-publisher, it’s the author who is responsible for the majority of book marketing. That means you. Your book is a product that needs to know and reach out to its potential buyer. You can’t snap without a marketable book; you can’t crackle without the know-how to push it, and you won’t pop unless you become the #1 cheerleader. And, you can’t have success without all three.

Susie Scott
You love the written word … how about the verbal one? A video can make your words crackle and pop in the eyes and ears of the viewer. Stunning graphics can accent your main points as they appear on the screen and stunning exits can pop them as they leave. Videos are sizzling hot for all ages…have you got yours ready?

Jeannette Seibly
When you talk about yourself and your books…do you sound like you’re bragging? To snap, crackle and pop awake your audiences require bragging in a business savvy manner. But there’s a knack to it. Find out how to brag effectively!

Mara Purl
What’s your THEME? Drill down until you find your aquifer: your pure, distilled message. Then what? Build your branding, your messaging, and your events from there: structure, form, slogan, takeaways, social media messaging, website style, and all-important event planning!

Kelly Johnson
Now that you know how to snap . . . crackle . . . and pop . . . how will you DO all that needs to be done to succeed? Kelly Johnson will share trade secrets, techniques, and special apps and programs to implement your messaging.

What’ Sizzling Hot in Book Marketing this Year?
Discover the Ninja in You!

Contrary to what many authors believe, writing the book is only 10% of publishing… it’s the 90% marketing that will make or break book success.

Gone are the days of national book signing tours where an author travels from city to city to meet fans and be featured on TV, radio and in print. Most authors are homebound with their favorite cup of coffee or tea and constant laptop companion. To the surprise of a traditionally published author and bewilderment of the self and indie author, it’s up to the author to be in charge of all marketing and publicity.

The knowledge, tools, tips, and techniques delivered here will impact every decision you make along the way. You and your book are the stars. Are they getting the share you both want? Most likely, not. Judith Briles will jump-start your thinking; what options you should be embracing for 2018; and, show you how to get started…or re-gear to start a new direction.
