Firehose Saturday Morning Book Marketing at AuthorYou with Dr. Judith Briles

ONLINE Saturday, June 4th, 2022
8:30 am MT, 10:30 ET

When it comes to authors and book marketing, it may be an Apple Pie and Ice Cream experience … or Crème Brulé with a Dill Pickle Topping. Kinda ugh. Whether marketing is fun or an overwhelming tsunami, there are tips, tricks, and tools that can calm your author resistance and get things moving once again.

  • How effective is yours?
  • What’s working?
  • What hasn’t?
  • What portals, software, tools are you currently using?
  • How often do you shout out you and your book?
  • Is your marketing all DIY or do you get help?
  • Are you open to new strategies and tips?

The #1 thing for authors to do is market their books. Let’s do it with some fun; some flair, and get results. If that sounds like something you would like to experience, get registered for the final First Saturday program before summertime hits. The next one will be in September.

Your Presenter is Judith Briles, author of 42 books, with over ONE MILLION sold since she published her first book in June of 1981 under the wings of a New York publisher. In 2000, she crossed over to Indie Publishing, creating her own press and taking on all publishing and marketing aspects of a book … and that’s when sales soared.
