At the beginning of this brand new year, you may be imagining reaching “The End” of your book. Yay! Of course, there is much to do after that, but it’s not too soon to learn how to polish your professional persona. How about visualizing yourself before a bunch of happy readers at your book launch, holding your book in your hands and presenting a polished presentation to your audience?
A factor that is important to your ongoing success is to create a positive relationship with your booksellers. This teleseminar will help you to learn what you need to know.
Whether you’re planning a book event at a retail book outlet or a unique venue, there are ways to make it right — things that can go wrong that an author might never imagine.

She will share with us the myriad steps that can make or break a book event, including a “Things to Do” and “Things Not to Do” checklist from which any author, whether debut or seasoned, can benefit.
You will learn about
- Making contact with event planners and negotiating your event
