“The Internet and Social Media for Authors” with Angela Misri and Joyce Grant:-
The web can be the fastest way to find and engage our reading audience. If we’re pre-published, social media can help us build the community of readers that will buy our book, review it, and recommend it to their friends. And one of the first things agents and publishers will do when they’re evaluating us as a potential author, is check out our online presence. If we’re already published—through a traditional publisher or self-published—social media can help us sell more books.
This session is all about focusing our time online to drive readership and book sales – from our author or illustrator website, to a Goodreads presence, to Wattpad, to tweeting!
