Skill Building for Memoir Authors: NAMW Member Teleseminar
December 14, 2012
11 AM PST 12 PM MST 1 PM CST 2 PM EST
For many authors, finding endorsers and writing the dreaded query letter can be daunting, but as independent authors and writers, it’s a skill we need to have. It’s not too soon to start building your list of potential endorsers. Join us at this workshop with publicist Stephanie Barko to learn more about how, when, and who to contact to get some major buzz going about your book.
A book endorsement is a sentence or two from a VIP, author, or key influencer that helps acquire new readers. High level endorsements have the potential to increase the value of your brand and borrow others’ audiences while providing an early positive and independent assessment of your material.
In this teleseminar we will explore:
• What endorsements can do for your book
• When to request endorsements
• Who to target as endorsers
• How to request endorsements
Keep your notebook or computer handy so you can take notes on this important topic!
