Book Publishers Northwest April meeting “Tweet On: How to Use (And Not Abuse) Twitter to Build Your Platform and Sell Your Books” will be led by local publisher and author Beth Jusino.
Does this sound familiar? You can knock out 1,000 words of day to spin a complex novel plot or tell a story that might change someone’s life, but those 140 characters of Twitter—with its curious @symbols and #abbreviations—still baffle you.
If so, you’re missing out. Twitter is a proven social media tool that welcomes 120 million users a month. It’s one of the most powerful cost-free ways for authors and publishers to expand their networks of influential readers, to establish themselves as experts in their fields, and yes, to sell some books. In this class, we’ll talk about how.
If you’re new to platform building on social media, this will give you the tools to launch with confidence. And if you’ve been on Twitter for a while, this is a good refresher and opportunity to take stock of what’s working for you and what different tools you can try.
Our April 25 meeting starts at 6 pm in Room 221 at Good Shepherd Center, 4649 Sunnyside N, Seattle.
Book Publishers Northwest’s meetings are free and open to anyone interested in the business of book publishing. Free parking is available on site. Smoking and alcohol are prohibited anywhere on the Good Shepherd Center premises by the landlord Historic Seattle.
