Publishing a book is no small feat. However, it’s only the beginning from a marketing and publicity standpoint. Sadly, many authors only receive minimal support in these areas from their publishing houses or PR firms, so we must all advocate for ourselves.
Longtime publicist and communications professional, Lauren Burke Meyer, has a proven track record of generating thousands of press clippings for clients, companies, and herself including coverage in The Washington Post, Forbes, Newsweek, Reader’s Digest, NBC DC, to name a few. She also has experience as a two-time columnist and reporter, so she knows how to approach and work with the media effectively.
Follow along as she shares her first-hand experience promoting her children’s book, plus anecdotes from her career. She’ll share unique channels for promoting your own book, how to pitch to the media, tips for great coverage, and suggestions for how to maximize the coverage that you earn. This meeting is perfect for the writer who wants to get the word out about their book and grow their following. An ample Q&A period will be offered at the end, so Lauren can share any additional advice that attendees might be seeking.
