Raise Your Author Profile with a Blog
How does a writer use effective blogging to promote products, gain new clients and establish credibility? And how does an effective blog target your audiences to turn them from readers to clients? Learn effective techniques for hooking a reader with a catchy topic, targeting your intended audience, keeping them reading, and selling your book. Presenter, Sarina Dorie, shares her experience working at a digital advertising agency with insider tips.
In her years working for a digital advertising agency, Sarina Dorie has become a blogging and social media ninja. She has sold over 100 short stories to markets like Daily Science Fiction, Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, Orson Scott Card’s IGMS, Cosmos, and Sword and Laser. Her stories and published novels have won humor and Romance Writer of America awards. Her steampunk romance series, The Memory Thief and her collections, Fairies, Robots and Unicorns—Oh My! and Ghosts, Werewolves and Zombies—Oh My! are available on Amazon.
By day, Sarina is a public school art teacher, artist, belly dance performer and instructor, copy editor, fashion designer, event organizer and probably a few other things. By night, she writes. As you might imagine, this leaves little time for sleep.
