Are you an author or want to be?

Authors just need to know how to write, right?  Well, actually writing is a business just like any other.  It requires various skills including communication skills.  An author needs to be part of the marketing process even if he or she has a publisher: book signings, selling his next novel to the publisher.  And an author needs to know how to be a great guest on a radio or tv show! My friend Felice Gerwitz over at Media Angels is hosting a series of seminars for authors on the various skills needed to be a successful author these days.  I'll be teaching about the communication skills an author needs on Thursday, April 15th at 8am PST/11am EST.   Her seminar on 10 Things Authors Must Know starts at 12:30pm EST that day! This series will become an audio series for sale on her site, but 12 people may be lucky enough to make it into the live recording for free!  That's how many are able to be at the live events.  Click here to read more details of how to join in the live show! It'll be a great opportunity for authors!  See you there!

    Sounds like a good series, JoJo. I agree, that an author does need to be involved in the marketing. No one will care as much about your book or be able to promote it with as much enthusiasm as you will. So, yes, goodcommunication skills are a must.

    I can’t wait to hear the rest of the series! I did the 1st show last week & listened in on Felice’s first talk. I plan on listening to yours Thurs., but I’ll have to catch Felice’s later as I have another commitment at that time.
