Free Author Marketing Conference July 14-15, 2012

Marketing Summer Camp July 14-15, 2012
Marketing Summer Camp is a two-day online conference designed to help authors learn the basics of marketing and promotion, and to fine tune skills already obtained. It will include guest speakers, pitch opportunities, prizes, top giveaways, and plenty of learning and fun. It will be held on the Yahoo group, Marketing for Romance Writers. Click here to join. Membership is open to published as well as non-published authors, editors, publishers, literary agents, author promotion services, cover artists, and all their virtual assistants.

Are you a member of the Marketing for Romance Writers Yahoo Group? Good. If not, quick! Go join. Why? Because MFRW members are automatically signed up for Marketing Summer Camp held July 14th-15th. If you want to take a particular course, read the messages posted with that title of the class. If you want to skip that class, don't read them. It's going to be that easy. Handouts and goody bags will be posted here on the website for you to nab once the conference begins.

There will be pitch appointments with multiple publishers for camp attendees. These will take place after camp so you don't have to miss classes. Karen Cote' and Karenne Lynn at CoffeeTime Romance are cooking up a deal to create these, so watch for more information.
