MARKETING & ADVERTISING

Workshops and lectures on how to increase sales, earn more money, and get your novels into more reader hands. Our 2019 conference covered both KindleUnlimited and wide marketing strategies. Publicists spoke on ways that novels stood out, and what caused some books to succeed and others to flop. Bestselling authors shared their secrets to increasing backlist sales, succeeding on Goodreads, and selling more audiobooks. Our 2020 curriculum will focus on unique methods to expand your readership base, build a more solid brand, and increase your sales in a consistent and reliable fashion - including beginning and advanced classes in Facebook, Amazon and BookBub ads.
