Well, we are actually drawing very near the end of this Debut Author Series! Can you believe it? But before I do finish up, I wanted to do a post on one of the biggest challenges and steepest learning curves I’ve experienced during the publication journey, and probably one of the most important elements of bringing out a book.
Marketing and Publicity.
So read on for my experiences around that. But be warned.... this post is a monster. Because it is a monster of a topic.
Last weekend I attended a YA workshop with excellent YA author, Vikki Wakefield, who lives in my city (or, like, near it or whatever.)
It was REALLY interesting.
And I'm not going to write out everything I learned (because that seems a bit unfair for a teacher to realise her lesson plan is making its way onto the internet), but it did make me think about a few things, and I wanted to record those ideas so I won't forget them.
