Event description

Description

Book reviewers, author interviewers, blog hosts, radio hosts, TV show hosts, podcast hosts, journalists, online and print magazines, vloggers, and other media sources are reaching out to Path To Publishing for an opportunity to interview the authors and experts who will be attending the "Act Like an Author, Think Like a Business" 2019 Conference that takes place September 26-28 at Rio All Suite Hotel & Casino. With that being said, instead of having one show broadcast live at the conference like we did in 2018, over a dozen media outlets and sources will be set up to do live, on the spot author interviews.

Not sure how this will work? Well, it's kind of like speed dating with the media.

On Friday evening, September 27, 2019 from 7:30 p.m.-9:30 p.m., various media outlets will set up shop at the "Act Like an Author, Think Like a Business" Conference, prepared to interview conference attendees (between 5-10 minutes each) as well as other local authors who RSVP via Eventbrite. There will be no appointments, but as we list on the conference website (www.pathtopublishing.com/conference) those media outlets who will be conducting interviews, do your homework and be ready to hit up the ones that fit your brand, vision, and audience.

This is a great opportunity to build your media kit (which those who are students in the Path To Publishing MBA in Publishing 50-hour program—which the conference now doubles as—will be working on as one of their assignments).

This is the only FREE event in conjunction with the "Act Like an Author, Think Like a Business" 2019 Conference. So, if you are a writer or an author, bring yourself, bring your book or publication, and be ready to bring "It!" So, get to working on those elevator pitches, positioning statements, and USPs (Unique Selling Points) . . . of which will be another assignment for the MBA in Publishing students.

Are you part of the media? Do you host a blog, vlog, podcast, etc., and would like to be a part of this amazing media experience? Then you, too, can register through Eventbrite to attend to interview these amazing literary artists. Books and publications have just as great of an influence on society as music, film, and dance. This is your opportunity to support the literary arts by putting these artists on the platforms they deserve. First, register here on Eventbrite, then email your credentials (name of show, etc.,) to info@pathtopublishing.com.

If you are a registered conference attendee who hosts a blog, radio show, puts out a newsletter, podcast, etc., you get first dibs on the available media slots. So, once you are registered for the conference as an attendee, which you can do so at www.pathtopublishing.com/conference, let us know you’d like to be a featured interviewer.

Wouldn't it be great to start announcing that you'll be interviewing live in Las Vegas at the “Act Like an Author, Think Like a Business” 2019 Conference "Author Media Blitz? You can even invite your followers, listeners, fans, supporters, viewers, and subscribers out to attend this FREE event. And as you build up the anticipation for your live interview, you can build up your audience as well.

If you have any questions, please email info@pathtopublishing.com.
