On April 9, 2013, our speaker will be Author Linda Schilling Mitchell (Dear Miss Schneider, Please Excuse Walter) presents “Getting the Gigs.” How to land interviews, articles, book signings, and speaking engagements, as you promote your book. Linda spent 30 years in the hospitality/hotel industry, as catering director, director of sales & marketing, and general manager. She uses this wealth of experience to increase her book sales, expand her network, and support our community of writers along the way.

· Generating leads. Whom to target for your specific book.

· Tools and resources available to promote your book.

· How to make a good presentation at a book signing or event.

When considering how to market your book, “think outside the box,” says Linda. “Try everything and anything. If they say ‘No,’ you haven’t lost anything. You’ve gained the experience of rejection. You can then move forward, more educated, to the next opportunity.”

As usual you are also welcome to bringin two pages of any work-in-progress for group critiques.

Happy Writing
