Market Yourself and Your Book

Jan 30, 2016

Florida State South Campus

This 4-hour workshop exposed authors to a variety of useful resources to assist them with promoting themselves and their book(s). They were given an opportunity to interact with other authors, publishing professionals, and experts in various forms of marketing. Participants interacted with successful authors who provided insight into marketing, using their personality to sell, graphic design, social media, and much more! A representative from Barnes & Noble shared information regarding policies with their stores.

The participants enjoyed a day of learning and networking. This workshop was co-sponsored by OnLine Binding and Florida State College at Jacksonville.
