Social Media and Marketing Essentials
for indie and traditional authors

by Liz Delton

For most authors, the hardest part of writing a book isn’t writing it, but getting it in front of readers, whether you’re self publishing or traditionally published. That’s where social media and marketing come in–but where do you start? What platforms should you be on? What do you talk about? Do you need a newsletter or a blog? And most importantly, how do you translate it into book sales?

Author of over a dozen books, fiction and nonfiction, both self and traditionally published, Liz Delton will talk about essential tools every author should use in order to get the word out, most of which will only cost you your time. Learn more about Liz at www.LizDelton.com
