Orna for Showcase imageSo many authors complain about marketing, seeing it as conflicting with their creative work. In this session Orna Ross argues that this is a misunderstanding and that book marketing is just another form of communication with potential readers. The key to creative marketing is to align the words inside the book(s) with the messages you’re sending out to the world. This session guides you through, by going deeply into your motivations for writing and applying the same seven stages of the creative process you go through in writing your books to your marketing and promotion.

This book looks at the opportunities and challenges for writers today in a rapidly transforming publishing landscape, where digital opportunities are changing everything we thought we knew about books. Filled with facts about contemporary writing and publishing, this book also offers creative and practical insights and instruction in how today’s authors can make a living — and a life — from writing.

    THanks for offering the book/workbook. The system also told me I had one more activity to complete. I’m not willing to leave my email in the comments, although I filled it in on the other form. This sounds like a very useful workbook and I plan to buy the actual book when it comes out, too.

    Thank you! This was very informative. You mentioned a download that accompanies this session toward the end. I’m probably looking right at it, but all I managed to download is the mp3 of the talk. ?

      You enter the giveaway above, Kamila, and give me your email address so I know where to send the download link. Thank you so much for your kind feedback
