Black Moments: Make Them Earn Their Happily Ever After
In our morning workshop, we will study “black moments” in well-known fiction and films, and then study your story ideas to craft a black moment that has your readers turning pages and holding their breath, hoping the heroes will earn that happily ever after. This will be a hands-on presentation with lively discussion and feedback on your work in progress or maybe a finished work that needs more impact at the end.
Online Author Promotion for the Digital Age
In the afternoon, we’ll be discussing new ways to find your readership and build your author brand. Facebook events, online street teams, author virtual assistants vs. publicists, and utilizing author newsletters will all be discussed and we’ll touch on reader interactions and take questions.
