Last weekend we were joined by Justin Newland in a workshop all about book promotion, marketing and self-publishing. Justin shared a wealth of practical tips covering everything from creating a quality product and putting on a book launch event, to getting the word out through media coverage and self-promotion.
A great group of local writers came along to pick up some tips about promoting their work. Some were writing children’s stories, others were working on fantasy or non-fiction. Everyone left the session with at least a couple of new ideas for things they could do to promote their book.
