“Author Blogs” with Sarina Dorie

February 2, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm


On Thursday, February 2, 2017 at 6:30 p.m. Mid-Valley Willamette Writers in Eugene will host Sarina Dorie who will share tips and strategies for using effective blogging to raise your author profile.

Raise Your Author Profile with a Blog

Everyone wants to show up as the highest ranking page in a search engine. When Google and Bing index a website, they consider over a hundred factors in ranking a webpage. The most significant is a regularly updated website with new content. The easiest way to do this is by including 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.

You can find info about her short stories and novels on her website: www.sarinadorie.com
