It’s Back to School Time for Authors!

Summer’s OVER! And like most people in the world, authors and writers come into the reality that it’s time to hunker down and get back to work. Not that we haven’t been writing or creating ideas all summer, it’s just that when fall arrives, our memories travel to the days of new school clothes, notebooks, pencils and getting down to study.

Since marketing, publicity and promotions are very much the author’s responsibility in order to be a GREAT selling author, today I’m going to dedicate my post to the many and various focuses you need to think about … even before your book is finished! This is the listing of the workshops I’ll be teaching between now and the end of the year. Grab a pen, find the help you need most, and sign up today!

The first listing is the workshops I’m teaching through The Author Success Coach website. All workshops are $15, taught online over a week, can be participated in at your leisure and cover valuable author success techniques. Sign up soon, workshops fill quickly.

After that is the list of workshops I’m teaching through Savvy Authors. These too are between $15 – $20. They are taught online within the Savvy Authors forums and cover a two week span. Here goes!
