Event description
You've self-published a book. Now how do you promote it? Come learn PR tips and strategies that will ultimately increase sales.

About this Event

Approximately 1 million books are published each year in the U.S., and about 50% of those books are self-published. This means authors are always competing to get attention for their books — and sales!

When an author has a publisher, that third-party takes the lead on getting public relations for their books. However, for self-published authors, their biggest challenge is their lack of knowledge on how to do their own PR.

In this interactive workshop, public relations consultant and author Cherrie Woods will share relevant and practical PR strategies to help authors develop a public profile for themselves and their books, and ultimately, get more sales.

Tickets:

$35 for workshop only / $45 for workshop and PR guide

Tickets are nonrefundable.
