The Monster—er, ART—of Marketing and Promotion from a Small Town - with author Ev Bishop

  • 24 May 2020
  • 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
  • On-line via a Zoom meeting
  • The very words marketing and promotion tend to strike fear and insecurity into the hearts of authors—and that unease is magnified when you live in a small town, where there is no publishing “industry,” no “network” for networking with, no “connections” to connect to. I’m happy to say, it doesn’t have to be that way! 

  • Regardless of how far off the beaten track you live or how isolated you feel, there are ways to find your unique readers, build your brand (Gag! Doesn’t that sound horrific and money grubbing? Don’t worry, Ev will de-horrify it.), and help you bring in at least enough dough to enable you to write even more—without making you feel like you’ve sold your soul.

  • Topics you’ll benefit from:

  •      Definitions of key terms—and a discussion about what promotion is and isn’t  
  •      The importance of having a marketing plan that fits you
  •      Three strategies that are critical for every author
  •      Other helpful tactics

Appropriate for writers of every form and genre, this workshop will be particularly valuable to those who are new to publishing or who have a few published books but haven’t done a lot (if any) formal marketing and feel intimidated by the process.

Please bring any questions you have!

This exclusive, online event is available to FBCW members for the promotional rate of $20 ($45 non-members).
