Book Hooks: Fun, Timely, Creative Angles for Promoting, Publicizing and Selling More Books with Joan Stewart “The Publicity Hound”

Writers, when it comes to generating publicity for your book, you can’t expect a press release about your novel or memoir to do all the heavy lifting.

You, as the writer or (often) publisher, must have a strong book “hook” or angle to get the media’s attention, then use press release about your book as background information.

Book publicity expert Joan Stewart will share more than a dozen hooks that smart authors can use to promote their fiction and nonfiction books.

You will learn:

  • How to “newsjack:” take a breaking new story and tie it to your novel or nonfiction book
  • Creative ideas for fiction
  • Powerful hooks for nonfiction
  • Joan will share the easiest place to start your book’s publicity campaign: This media outlet will welcome you with open arms!

If you have any questions ahead of time, you may send them to us.
We will also take questions during the phone seminar. However, you will NOT be able to speak directly over the phone. If you have questions that come up, they can be emailed during the seminar.

Now and during the seminar, submit your questions to Gary Young: artsy112 AT with the subject line PUBLICITY QUESTIONS.
