Upcoming Webinar: Promoting Your Work Through Collaborative Marketing

I’ve often said that starting The Sweet Sixteens debut group was the best decision I made as a new author – not only did it give me a great support network, but it also helped me understand that some of my best marketing and promotion moments happened when I was supporting other authors’ work. Since then, I have been honored to serve first as Published and Listed Member Coordinator and now co-Regional Advisor for the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators MD/DE/WV region, and have lots of opportunities to connect and cross-promote with other authors. One of the most exciting has been participating in the Read Local Challenge, a massive multi-author reading incentive program run by human dynamo Veronica Bartles. I am honored to co-present this webinar with Veronica:

Promoting Your Work Through Collaborative Marketing

90 minute webinar presented by Veronica Bartles and Kathy MacMillan

Wednesday, April 25, 2018 at 7:00pm Eastern/ 6:00pm Central/ 5:00 Mountain/ 4:00 Pacific

SCBWI Members: $15         Non-members: $25

Learn from home! A 90-minute webinar to help you better promote your work, whether you are traditionally published, self-published, or a hybrid author.

Many writers and illustrators dread marketing, but promoting your work doesn’t have to be a chore! Sometimes, spreading the word about others’ books is the best way to market your own.  Learn how to collaborate with other children’s book creators on events, programs, and initiatives that will raise the profile of your work without turning you into a carnival barker.

Veronica Bartles is the author of the picture book, The Princess and the Frogs (Balzer + Bray), and the young adult novel, Twelve Steps. As the Published and Listed Coordinator for the MD/DE/WV Region of SCBWI, she coordinates the Read Local Challenge to facilitate connections between schools/libraries/bookstores and our local authors/illustrators.

Kathy MacMillan is the author of the young adult novels Sword and Verse and Dagger and Coin (HarperTeen), the board book Nita’s First Signs (Familius), and many resource books for parents, educators, and librarians. She is the co-Regional Advisor for the MD/DE/WV Region of SCBWI, and is the founder and lead administrator of The Sweet Sixteens debut group.
