Too many memoirists and others who write in literary genres like poetry have come to believe that marketing or promotion won’t work for them. Worse, that it can’t be done. Worse still, that it is counter to their artistic intent. How do you feel about marketing? Does it make your heart beat harder? It’s time to get in the flow of positive thinking about getting your book, and yourself, into the world.


Some of our greatest writers and artists have been master marketers. Think Mark Twain, Dickens, Andy Warhol, Peter Max. Think, too, how many more people they reached and inspired because they were good at reaching out to people. Won’t you join us to learn how you can get over your barriers to being a magic marketer?

During this teleseminar you will learn:

  • How to get over your fear of publicity and marketing
  • About the single most important technique for memoirists and other creative types
  • Important information about query letters and book proposals
  • How to develop a positive, joyful attitude about marketing

Carolyn Howard-Johnson is an award-winning poet. She is also the author of a literary novel that garnered eight awards and a book of creative nonfiction short stories.

She utterly rejects the notion that it’s futile for authors of literary genres to market their books. In fact there has never been a time when they can reach more readers faster and more effectively. You can become your own publicist or a full marketing partner with your publisher or publicist. Come let her share publicity basics and some of her promotion secrets with you.
