Writing a genre fiction series: turning a writing dream into a writing career

Start planning your next series to build on your brand and take you to the next level. 

We will cover:

  • How to craft the next first-in-series evergreen book that will sell for years and lay the foundation for 5+ books to follow. 
  • How (and when) to spin-off and take your readers with you. 
  • How to weather the ups and downs of the market when you feel like the tortoise surrounded by the hare.

How to Be Your Own Marketing Manager

The trick to book marketing is to hire yourself to promote your author persona online. But what does that look like when you break it down to a to-do list and a weekly or monthly task list? In this workshop, we cover social media, backlist marketing, and front list (new release) marketing tips and tricks.
