Social Media and Blogging for Authors: Chicago Self-Publishing Group Event on Thursday, August 22
If you’re a writer in the Chicago area and want to learn more about the dizzying world of social media and how you can use these tools effectively, I think you should head to the next Chicago Self-Publishing Group event at the Lincoln Park branch of the Chicago Public Library on Thursday, August 22, at 6:15 p.m.
You want to write books, and that’s the important first step, of course, the actual writing. But your job as an author doesn’t end with your completed manuscript. The book market is tight— and it’s expanding—and social media marketing is the key to highlight and build on your work.
Sure, Facebook and Twitter may feel like a breeze to you, but what about LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Instagram? Do all these options overwhelm you? Local marketing expert Sue Koch of Soaring Solutions will talk to the group about blogging and using social media in the specific context of book publishing. So get your questions ready.
Did I mention that this event is free? The Chicago Self-Publishing Group, which is organized by Kim Bookless, another Chicago publishing powerhouse, is a great way to meet other writers and professionals and learn more about the industry in a comfortable environment.
I hope to see you on Thursday!by
