No weekend-long seminar about writing and bringing your book to market will be complete without a talk about marketing! It’s one of the least favorite subjects of would-be authors, but its necessary… and if done write, it can be a creative and fulfilling part the processing of bringing your book to market!
A popular misconception is that only indie’s have to market: not true! Even those traditionally published have to work hard to bring their book into the public eye! learn some of the tricks of the trade with one of our province’s most successful small-press marketers, Scott Bartlett, author of Powered, Supercarrier, and Taking Stock! 12:30-1:45 on Sunday, August 27!
The Writer’s Block will be a series of panels arranged in chronological order for those keeping notes, with the first panels on Friday being aimed towards coming up with ideas and starting your manuscript, and the final panels on Sunday being about getting your work published! We’re going to take you through it all!
In total, The Writer’s Block will be nearly twenty-three hours of writing-and-publishing related help, of the sort that would normally be valued at hundreds of dollars, all for the low-cost of an Avalon Expo 3 ticket.
Avalon Expo 3 Costs:
Child Weekend: $5
Regular Weekend in Advance: $40
Regular Weekend at the Door: $45
Infinity Weekend: $175 (only available in advance)
Stay tuned here to Engen Books and on the Avalon Expo Facebook page as every few days we peel back one of the blacked-out slots on the banner above and reveal one of the epic courses that will be taking place, with some that will surprise you… including a Top Secret event that everyone’s going to want to attend 😉
