The days of authors doing nothing but writing are over. With the explosion in self-publishing, the rise of hyper-succesful indie authors, and with traditional publishers cutting marketing budgets deeper every year, it’s more important now than ever for you to create a vibrant and engaging author brand if you want your books to sell.

But creating an author brand is an intimidating prospect. Where do you start? How do you generate interest? What tools do you use? And how do you translate an author brand into sales?

In this 2-hour live online workshop, author, social media strategist, and expert brand manager Lacy Phillips will teach you the foundations you need in order to start planning and building an author brand that will keep your readers coming back to you and your books, and that will generate book sales. Lacy’s years in the publishing industry — both as a successful author and at P.S. Literary Agency — have perfectly positioned her to teach you how a marketer approaches developing a unique online identity based on a flexible framework. Plus, you’ll learn handy tips on how to manage your reputation and strategically market your work.

You’ll leave the workshop with a deep understanding of how author brands are developed and managed, and with the knowledge you need to begin developing your own. You’ll also understand how to think like a marketer in today’s publishing environment, in which both indie and traditionally-published authors are charged with doing their own marketing. Plus, get live Q&A time to ask Lacy, a professional brand manager and key part of a respected literary agency, any questions you might have!

Having an author brand is a critical aspect of selling books today — don’t leave yours to chance!
