Our MMRWA August meeting will be held on Saturday the 19th at Brewster's Junction in Portage, with multi-published program chair, Nancy Gideon speaking on "A K.I.S.S. Approach to Your Book Release."
A promotional platform is a necessary (and expected) evil to get the biggest bang for your novel's release, but surprisingly, the time to start your campaign is the minute you conceive a book/series idea. Nancy Gideon has streamlined a build-as-you-go process from initial concept through organized steps toward happily-ever-after sales by doing things sooner rather than later (or at the last minute!) to take the panic out of PR. (OCD and Excel not required!)
