September 7, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Online: Count the eyeballs. Divide By two. – How to Focus Your Efforts to Build an Audience for Your Writing, with Benjamin Gorman

Authors are frequently encouraged to use social media to promote our work. But isn’t social media a huge time suck? Or a cesspool of abuse? Or both? Publisher and author Benjamin Gorman shares some learning he’s gained over years of marketing authors’ work online which will save you time and heartache as you try to get your books into readers’ hands. Learn about different platforms, author websites, blogs, and more. We will meet online on September 7th from 7:00 to 8:30 PM.
