New! I am pleased to announce that Beyond the Bestseller List will be offered at The Loft Literary Center this summer. This workshop will be held on June 25. Registration is now open!
If you are considering starting a book blog or just want to get free books, get in touch with authors, or get into the online book community, this is for you. This is a longer version of a class I taught at the North Shore Readers and Writers Festival in Nov 2015. Click below for more info about the class.
New! Excited to be co-teaching a promotional bootcamp with Kevin Finley at the Loft this summer, Flex Your Promotional Muslces: A Bookcamp for Authors. Two sessions all about platform and branding, marketing, publicity and social media! To be held on July 30 and August 2. Register now. Yes, it means giving up two Saturdays, but it will be time well spent if you are promoting your own work.
I will also be presenting at CONvergence in July in Minneapolis, and will speak at a Sisters in Crime meeting in August.
