Embracing the intersection of marketing and craft in the age of social media
It’s easy to think of marketing as a big, nebulous to-do list of tasks and campaigns, which many authors understandably find overwhelming. But I’ve found that the most effective marketing can also be the simplest and the most fun — and a lot of it happens when writing and editing, long before you start worrying about PPC ads or Instagram posts. In this session, we’ll discuss how to distill what you love most about your book in the writing and editing stages, and use it as fuel for word-of-mouth marketing in today’s social media landscape.
About Carissa Broadbent
Carissa Broadbent has been concerning teachers and parents with mercilessly grim tales since she was roughly nine years old. Since then, her stories have gotten (slightly) less depressing and (hopefully a lot?) more readable. Today, she is a Wall Street Journal bestselling author of novels that blend epic fantasy plots with a heaping dose of romance. She is best known for the Crowns of Nyaxia series and the War of Lost Hearts trilogy. She lives with her husband, her son, and one perpetually skeptical cat in Rhode Island.
