A writer friendly approach to marketing your book efficiently and then understanding the flow of a query at a publishing house and how decisions are made whether to buy a book. Cover letters that grab the reader, how to do a one page synopsis, and other practical matters will be covered. We will discuss what you can do marketing-wise to be a success in this business and cover a variety of techniques from book-signings, media outlets, publicists to other innovative ways. Then on to the business: Fee-charging agents; sell-through and sales numbers; E-books; print-on-demand; shrinking mid-lists; corporate mergers; self-publising; what does all this mean to the writer who often feels on the outside? You hear agents and editors talk about the business but it’s important to understand a writer’s point of view.
