Writing a book and getting it published is hard enough–however the work doesn’t end there. Both traditionally and self-published authors are expected to do their own promotion, and there are so many options for promotion, it can be hard to know which ones are most effective, let alone which ones are out there before publication. In this workshop, we will address lessons learned from both the author and publicity and marketing sides of the debut novel experience.With experience as an author and Assistant Director of Publicity and Marketing at a small press, Meg Eden will share what she has learned from promoting her own books, as well as the resources to get connected with larger networks of authors writing in your genre. This workshop is best for authors with a forthcoming book (ideally 6 months to a year out), but is also helpful for those with a completed book on submission, or an author who has already published work.
