Tomorrow, Saturday, 14 July, I’ll be giving a talk on social media at a writers workshop called “Author at Once Chapter 2: Marketing”. Author at Once is a workshop series by our company Bronze Age Media aimed at helping writers get published. Although the workshops emphasize indie publishing — publishing your work without traditional book publishing companies — we try to present material that will also be useful to writers who have already been traditionally published or are trying to get a contract with a traditional publisher. My talk on social media marketing is for both published and unpublished writers, and those who want to publish independently or through a publishing house. Even traditionally published and established authors do social media marketing, and tomorrow’s workshop will try to teach you how to do it as painlessly as possible.
“But I hate doing Twitter/Facebook/Tumblr/etc.!” you say. We understand! Not everyone likes to be social or get friendly with strangers online.
