Author Marketing and Branding- How to Stand Out in a Crowd

May 20-30

Are you deathly afraid of marketing and promotion? Well, you need to get over it, because your publisher most likely isn't going to fork over money and resources to publicize your book. And with so many great books out there, how will potential readers know about your book if you don't tell them yourself? In this course you will learn what branding is, what your platform is and how to develop it, including tips for book launches and signings, what should be on your website, how to put together author pages on sites like Amazon and Goodreads, and much more!

Cassandra Carr is a multi-published erotic romance writer with Ellora's Cave, Siren, and Loose Id who lives in Western New York with her husband, Inspiration, and her daughter, Too Cute for Words.
