This event was held on April 18, 2012 at Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room
With the new ease and popularity of self-publishing, everyone from your elderly neighbor to your teenage babysitter is becoming a published author. But how do you combat the hordes of eBooks and print books available to reach your readers, and actually sell some books? How can you make your work stand out?
Join us for what should be a lively discussion on creative ways to market and publicize your book. This event is co-sponsored by the Detroit Chapter of the Women's National Book Association.
Panelists include: Kai Blum, director of Search Engine Marketing at Ingenex Digital in Ann Arbor; Emlyn Chand, president of author PR firm Novel Publicity; and author Ann Pearlman, whose memoir, "Infidelity," was nominated for a National Book Award and a Pulitzer Prize, and was made into a Lifetime movie by Lionsgate.
The panel will be moderated by Shannon Janeczek, whose full-time gig has been marketing and business writing for almost 20 years.
