Part of what I do here at Idea Creations Press is to provide you not only with material that hopefully helps you write better, publish better, and market better, but I also suggest classes that will be of great benefit to you.
Two such classes are coming up.
Getting Your Book Marketing Off the Ground is sponsored by Writers 4 Literacy and will be held at:
West Valley City Family Fitness Center
May 17 (that's a Saturday)
9:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.
5415 W. 3100 S. West Valley City, Utah
Speakers will focus on various aspects of marketing. The two my husband and I will be discussing:
How to Make a Book Trailer
"Kathryn Jones spoke at our local writers group last week. Her topic was "Book Trailers." I had no idea what that was--I thought maybe it was the blurb that appears on the back of paperbacks or on the fly flap of hardbacks. Well, I not only learned what a book trailer really was, I also learned a lot more ideas on promoting your books..." (Sharee Hughes, soon to be publishing her first mystery novel).
How to Set Up Your Own Blog
What information should you include on your blog? What should be your blog's backdrop? What should you try to avoid? These questions and more will be answered during the discussion on blogs.
If you've been to a previous speaking engagement of mine on these subjects, plan on attending. Much has changed, even in the past year, and we will be sharing the most up-to-date information on marketing your book. The cost is $45 total for all classes if you register by May 1. $50 after that or at the door.
For more information or to sign up contact Jill Vanderwood at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The second class will be held during:
The League of Utah Writer's annual Round-Up
September 12 and 13 (that's a Friday and Saturday)
Davis Conference Center
No further details are posted yet on the League's site but I'll make sure you get the link when they are. My husband and I will be teaching Marketing Your Book on a Budget, both on Friday and Saturday. League cost for all classes and meals average a little over $100 for both days.
