“Authors often don’t realize that they need a fully developed, robust author platform to break into the publishing industry, attract readers, cultivate other opportunities such as speaking appearances, and sell more books,” states Jennifer S. Wilkov, CEO of Your Book Is Your Hook. “There are a number of ways to publish your book and many creative outlets to assist you. However, there are so many options that it can become extremely overwhelming and confusing for the writer who often doesn’t feel competent as a marketer for his or her own projects. An author with an amazing concept could easily get rejected by the industry or ignored by the audience he or she has targeted. We want to prevent that from happening by educating authors and breaking down the cluttered and often conflicting information they find on the Internet into clear actionable steps they can take to really succeed.”

The First Beginner Class #1 of the series will cover topics such as:

Myth-busters about publishing including traditional publishing via an agent, self-publishing and e-book publishing

The difference between PR and Marketing for your book

What should a Public Relations campaign for an author include

The rules to Author PR

PR time & resource dedication

What is a press release and a pitch letter, and what items should be included for author media attention

“Once an author creates a solid platform, the public needs to know about him or her in order to sell books. We want them to understand that and also be prepared to truly realize the power of a true PR campaign,” states Monique Tatum, CEO of Beautiful Planning Marketing & PR. “During the learning series, we really cover all bases for authors that are on the fence when it comes to signing on for a Publisher’s PR package, hiring a publicist, or attempting to do it themselves. We teach them not only what to expect, but how to ensure that all is done right. Authors need a solid success path and these classes will be just that for them.”
