June 19: Market While You Write

Authors and publishers will want to attend our June meeting, when Beth Jusino discusses how to ” Market While You Write.”

Today most of the responsibility for generating early marketing buzz falls on the author. “Market While You Write” gives authors and independent publishers six practical, inexpensive, and realistic ways for new authors to build a brand and start gathering a community of readers and influencers, even before the first books come out. Beyond the practical steps offered in this session, Jusino also shares deeper lessons on how to make good marketing decisions that are both achievable and affordable.

This meeting starts at 4 p.m., June 19, in Room 221 at Good Shepherd Center, 4649 Sunnyside N, Seattle, Washington. This meeting is free and open to anyone interested in publishing.
