How to Build an Audience and Sell More Books with Stephen Gordon.
Tim O’Reilly famously said ‘The problem for most artists is obscurity.’ Many new writers feel social media cures that problem for them but thousands of followers, likes, shares, or retweets doesn’t pay the bills, and working only for exposure will not put you on the best-seller lists.
No matter how you plan on making your money as a writer — self-publishing, crowdfunding, signing to a small press, joining one of the big five publishers — you will not get the chance unless people have heard of you and feel the need to buy your work.
In this workshop, Stephen will show you how to build an audience and sell more books using a balance of productivity, pricing, and promotion that fits your writing style and personality.
