WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION:

Do you have a book coming out in 2016 and are wondering where to start marketing it? Have you heard conflicting stories about what works and what doesn’t? Lots of things work but are unmeasurable so how do we really know?

When should you start marketing? Will it cost money to do it right? Would you do something differently for a debut book than you would a third or fourth book? Or would you do something differently if you are independently publishing or being published by a traditional publisher?

Come along on a two week information-packed workshop where you’ll hear true marketing tips from the indie trenches that apply to all authors who have a book coming out no matter who is publishing it and whether it is your first or your fourth. Take some first steps and lay the groundwork for your marketing efforts, and end with a step by step customizable action plan that fits with your time, your budget, and your goals. Designed for marketing beginners and also those looking for new ideas.

Self-Publishing 101 Virtual Workshop with Marie Force
By Marie Force
June 13th – 18th, 2016
TRACK: Business of Writing
LENGTH: One week
$25.00 for Non-Members
$22.50 for RWA Members (10% OFF)
$18.75 for Passionate Ink Members (25% OFF)

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION:

Once you embark on a career as an independent author, you are no longer just a writer. You are now officially a publisher and business-owner! With that comes all the responsibilities of a publishing company, including editing, formatting, cover art design, distribution decisions, pricing and promotion.

Bestselling author Marie Force will generously share her secrets for success in this ultimate overview for your self-publishing business. This workshop will take place over the course of a week via Marie’s Self-Publish Yahoo! Group, and will include an “Ask Me Anything” day where she will answer your burning questions.

Workshop topics include:

ABOUT THE PRESENTER: Marie Force is the New York Times bestselling author of 50 contemporary romances, including the Gansett Island Series, which has sold more than 2.2 million books, and the Fatal Series from Harlequin Books, which has sold more than 1 million books. In addition, she is the author of the Green Mountain Series from Berkley Publishing as well as the new erotic romance Quantum Series, written under the slightly modified name of M.S. Force.

Marie is the moderator of the Self-Publish Yahoo Group and the Author Support Network Facebook Group that offers a platform for discussion and advice for self-published, traditional and hybrid authors. She also hosts several virtual workshops each year on craft and publishing industry topics and is the owner of the E-book Formatting Fairies. She recently launched Jack’s House Publishing, where she will be working with selected authors to publish contemporary romance.

Her goals in life are simple—to finish raising two happy, healthy, productive young adults, to keep writing books for as long as she possibly can and to never be on a flight that makes the news.
