PROGRAM: Marketing, Blogs, and Reader Events by Ana Ivies
With the landscape of publishing changing, newspapers are no longer the only source for book reviews. Online blogs have entered the stage. The trick is finding the right one and building lasting relationships from reviews all the way up to reader events.
Why are blogs important and how do you pick the best fit for your brand or book? Why are reader events and virtual parties important and how do you plan one? Most importantly, how do you build relationships with the hosts of this powerful new digital world and the readers taking the ride with you?
Ana Ivies from Wicked Book Events will be on hand to chat blogs, marketing, events, audience and to share tips for author success...straight from the source.
