RRBC Writers' Conference and Book Expo

The Rave Reviews Book Club is getting ready to host an online conference, December 1-3.  It's a chance to make connections with your fellow indie authors and service providers as well as to attend insightful educational programming.

I've helped create two of the educational sessionss: "Intro to Canva" and "Anatomy of a Book Cover."  For "Intro to Canva," I've created a video tutorial on using Canva to create social media graphics.  "Anatomy of a Book Cover" is a presentation I've been working with author/designer Jan Hawke.  They are both super informative, full of good advice and examples, and will get your creative juices flowing.
Other planned sessions include
  • Building Your Author Platform
  • Why Your Brand is Important and Why Protecting It Is Even More Important
  • Why You Should Never Refuse LIVE Media Interviews
  • Blogging for Success
  • Literary Lingo 101
  • Marketing 101
  • Indie vs Traditional: Which One Wins?
  • Social Media Dos & Don'ts
  • Editors: Sniffing Out The Right One
  • Formatting Made Easy
  • Your Best Self Promotion Tool...
  • Writing In The Senior Season
  • Writing the Perfect Book Review
  • Book Blurbs Do's & Don'ts
You will also find Author Booths and Vendor Booths.  You can discover great new books to read, and you can look for the publishing professionals you need to complete your current work in progress or to help you market your catalog of published work.

Even if you are not a member of Rave Reviews Book Club, this event is worth checking out.  You can register for sessions here.  If you want to have an author booth, you must first join the club here. The registration deadline for the conference is November 23, so don't dawdle.
