On November 4th I’ll be giving a presentation at the 40th Annual Sinclair Community College Writers’ Workshop. My session is titled “Marketing and Promoting Your Writing Today: Building an Author Platform.”
In it I’ll cover the importance of building an online author platform for reaching new readers, opening up new opportunities and increasing sales. I plan to introduce various tools for creating a platform as well as discuss best practices.
The keynote speaker for the workshop is author Maaza Mengiste, whose debut novel Beneath the Lion’s Gaze was named one of the 10 best contemporary African books by The Guardian.
Overall I”m very much looking forward to the experience.
