This month’s Green Room is a special Q&A event on Book Promotion with Kathleen Kaiser, President of the Writers & Publishers Network, leader of the IWOSC Ventura County Satellite and a member of IWOSC’s Leadership Board.
IWOSC’s Green Rooms are free Members Only events where Steven Sanchez and Gary Young normally deep dive into your questions on anything pertaining to your writing. This month, former book publicist of the year Kathleen Kaiser will take your questions live about all things book promotion. Kathleen actively promoted her clients’ books throughout the challenging times of the pandemic and knows what works today (and what doesn’t).
We will be recording this event so Green Room participants will not be on camera, other than Kathleen, Steven & Gary. We will be taking your questions live during the event however.
“Kathleen’s past events on book marketing and promotion have been masterclass-level events,” says Steven Sanchez. “Don’t miss this golden opportunity to ask her YOUR questions.”
