How To Promote Your Book: Aimed At The Independent Writer!
Thu, June 1, 2017, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM BST
Are you an independent writer? Then this talk is for you!
Entertainment PR Diane Hinds recognised that so many writers who followed the less traditional routes lacked media coverage, reviews, and improved sales
How To Promote Your Book guides writers through the process of devising their personalised campaigns, with comprehensive information regarding research, targeting the audience, creating the key message, as well as writing a press release and learning about distribution. Writers will learn how to achieve these elements in an affordable way, delivering to the public sound public relations, through a well-thought-out campaign.
Diane has delivered over 60 talks to literary festivals and libraries on this subject, including events in California during February 2017. She returns to continue helping empower independent writers to achieve that all important media coverage.
