While admitting that information on book launches could fill up at least a one-day conference, the three women hope to give an overview of things that worked well on their personal or client launches. Thea will discuss how to invite the world to your book launch on Zoom and she will introduce CraveBooks.com, a new website that will help authors connect with readers and find and organize marketing campaigns.
Barbara will discuss the nuts and bolts of launch planning, including picking a venue that is appropriate for your target demographic.
Spry will focus on ways to partner with local organizations and venues, doing effective news releases, soliciting TV and radio interviews (also podcasts) and even compiling simple movie trailers.
The meeting will begin at 12:30 p.m. at the Shawnee County Public Library, in the Langston Hughes Room, and will also be held on Zoom. This is a half-hour earlier than the group’s normal start time. To join the zoom meeting, send an email request to Anne Spry.
