We are very fortunate to be able to have Dan Blank join us on how book marketing works today.
COVID, the internet, social media, changes in traditional publishing, and book selling all have radically changed how books get sold in 2023. Dan Blank has helped thousands of writers successfully navigate traditional and independent publishing and changes in book marketing. Our president Gary Young, vice president Steven Sanchez and Sharon Goldinger will be asking Dan their questions and yours about book marketing in 2023.
- What should your 2023 book marketing include?
- What social media platforms are best for you and your book?
- What should a book launch plan include?
- How is book marketing different for fiction and nonfiction books?
- How far in advance should your book marketing start?
- Do you need to hire a publicist?
