Thanks to the Bexley Public Library for inviting me to teach a seminar on book marketing. Last Saturday, I talked through some basic book marketing strategies with a small but energetic crowd.
To my surprise, there was a spectrum of experience levels there, which provided great fodder for Q&A. From those just beginning to explore the self-publishing process, to authors published by small presses, we had a lot of great cases to explore.
Specifically, thank you to Whitney at the Bexley Library for arranging the seminar, and for making me feel at home. And thank you to all of the attendees for coming out and being a great audience, I hope it was a valuable experience for you.
Thanks to Columbus State for hosting a great Writers’ Conference, and for inviting fellow CCC author (and author of Graham’s Charlotte) and I to present a workshop.
Drew and I gave a great class to a very warm crowd about working with a team of writers, based on our experience writing Capital Offense with a couple of other guys.
I offer a special thanks to Jamie Demonte for his tireless efforts to put on such a great conference. For an institution to pull the quality of presses and writers, including keynotes like Roxane Gay, is a huge testament to Jamie’s work and reputation in the community.
You can learn more about the conference and some of our fellow presenters here.
Join me in tonight at the Delaware Library Orange Branch at 7pm for a free seminar on the five key steps to professional book publication. If you’re interested in self-publishing or even publication through a traditional publishing house, this course will be a great primer on how great books are produced.

This program starts at 7pm tonight, April 9, 2014, and is free and open to the public.
