Is this your year to publish?

If 2014 is the year that you plan to launch your writing career, this workshop will help you establish your literary brand.  Selling books beyond friends and family requires creating a forum and following for your material long before it is released.

* three early elements that are essential for modern book promotion
* how you will create your following
* some clever ways to get your name out there

This workshop is recommended for not-yet-published authors who are beginning to create their online author identity.
