Program Info:

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!)
