As an indie author I know how difficult it can be to get your books into the hands of a mainstream audience. Over the years I have tried many different tools and techniques, with varying degrees of success. Today, I’m pleased to be earning a good second income from my books – they’re unlikely to make me super rich, but it’s enough to fund things in life I couldn’t afford any other way.
But, the only reason I’m in this fortunate position is because I’ve learnt about marketing my books the hard way. I’d now like to share that knowledge with a small group of up to 5 people in a tutored writing retreat which focuses on the knowledge and skills needed to promote your books to the right audiences.
It’s taking place close to the beautiful North Cornwall coast between 13th and 15th November this year (2015) in a wonderful holiday cottage with fab views, luxurious bedrooms, wood burning stoves for curling in front of and a hot tub for those brave enough to use it.
We’ll be covering a whole range of topics from building an email list to understanding how Amazon works. It will be very hands-on and practical so you go away with actions taken and a plan to follow for the following few months.
Everything is included in the price so you only need to bring yourself and a laptop and/or tablet device …. oh, and a swimsuit if you plan to use the hot tub.
For those who want to add a little extra, there’ll be an early masterclass on Friday morning covering the essentials of a good author website that works.
You can find out more about the tutored writing retreat on my website here and if you’ve any questions please do just ask.
