As if writing weren’t hard enough, we have to market ourselves too?
We’re writers. We want to write--not market. Marketing’s not as hard as you think, and it will help you build what is commonly called your author platform. And you need that to sell your books.
How can you actually connect with your readers? Get your books into more hands? It’s a challenge, especially when 3,500-odd books are published every day.
In this 45-minute presentation from Picture Book Summit 2015, Katie Davis’ shares how she's used her platform and marketing to sell over 755,000 copies of her traditionally published books and launch two books at #1 on Amazon and how you can follow the sames steps to getting your books in the hands of more readers!
Katie is Director of the Institute of Children’s Literature and acclaimed writer/illustrator whose credits include 10 books for children, which have sold over 755,000 copies. Her two books for writers, How To Promote Your Children’s Book and How to Write a Children’s Book are both #1 Amazon bestsellers. Katie hosts the weekly podcast Writing for Children.
