Author U Extravaganza and Book Distribution for Self Published Authors
I just got back from Author U Extravaganza in Denver. This author educational workshop event takes place the first weekend of May every year. I go to a lot of conventions and workshops each year and this one was, hands down,my favorite.
The presenters did wonderful, thought-provoking presentations on SEO, social media, book marketing, and many other topics that independent authors need. Guy Kawasaki was there for the Keynote and his speech made me a believer! I am now a huge fan. He knows his stuff.
I am not sure how I was included in this rarified list of amazing presenters, but I was asked to do a talk on Book Distribution and improving your book sales. I called the talk. “Are You Ready For the Marketplace?” Maybe because I own a book distribution company? Well.. I had a blast.
There is a video of the talk. (I’m watching it now and cringing a little at my lipstick color choice) But overall, I like what came across. I will be posting snippets from that video over the next week in a series called “Are You Ready”?
Thank you SO much to Judith Briles of www.authoru.org and to all the lovely authors I met. I look forward to seeing you all soon!
