Overview:
Finishing your book, finding an agent, even getting published does not define success for a writer. A successful author is one who sells books…a lot of books. Everything else is just process. “The process is what everyone focuses on,” says author, editor, marketer and publisher Kendra Bonnett, “success is getting your story known, building recognition for you and your work and translating that into sales.”

Kendra will discuss some take-charge strategies and tactics designed to
1) put you in control and
2) play to your strengths.

She will talk about:

  • Beyond writing—the requirements for being a successful author today.
  • Web presence—it’s so much more than having a website.
  • You the expert—capitalize on your knowledge and your passion.
  • Writing your way to book sales—you already possess the most critical skill for success.
  • Start now—if you’re writing now and not thinking about next steps, you’re already late to the game; writing and web presence go hand-in-hand.

Bio: Kendra is an award-winning author who has written more than 150 magazine articles and written, edited or ghostwritten seven books, including An IBM Guide to Doing Business on the Internet (McGraw-Hill, 2000).
