Sept 28, 2019 Willow Sanders – What Comes Next?

You Wrote a Book, Now What?

Congratulations! You finished a novel.  Whether it’s your first or your fourth (or beyond), you may wonder “what should I do next?”

The answer is market.

While posting it to your social network and asking your friends and family to purchase might equate to a few ticks in the sales column, what else can you do to establish a loyal following and successful release strategy?  Join author Willow Sanders as she details intermediate strategies for building a lasting readership.   

Come prepared to take notes, as this discussion will be chalk full of information detailing things like building distribution lists, engaging with bloggers to attain reviews, advanced social media marketing, and much more!

About our Speaker

Willow Sanders

A marketer by day and author by night,  she writes sweet with heat Contemporary Romance as well as Romantic Suspense.  This year she had a dual release Romantic Suspense, I Will Always Find You and Found.  Her debut novel, Dirty Little Secret won breakout author of the year in 2012 from AuthorsDatabase.com and was the Book Buzz PR – Romance Novel of the year.  

She has been a Municipal Liaison for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) since 2004, both in Chicago and now in Phoenix so if you participate you’ll be seeing a lot of her in October and November.  She is also the Vice President of Desert Rose RWA and the publicity chair for Valley of the Sun. 

When not writing you can find her torn between her loyalty to the Fighting Illini and her husband’s loyalty to Michigan State, bemoaning traffic, feeding her caffeine addiction at the Green Mermaid (otherwise known as Starbucks) and trying to find the connection between her and the Gilmore Girls–because she is certain she is a long-lost family member.
