PROGRAM: 18 Things I wish I’d Known about Marketing

Authors often think about writing the book, but to be successful the book must also be marketed. Gone are the days when the publisher did everything for you. Often times it’s up to the authors to have a plan. But what if you aren’t a marketing major and you never thought about how to position yourself in the crowd to stand out? This workshop will help the published author or future published author be ready to take the next steps in their career.

Speaker: Jennifer Fusco

Jennifer Fusco began writing romance in 2010 as a way to expend the excess creative energy which wasn’t exhausted by her day job.

A fan of all genres, Jennifer enjoys reading and writing contemporary romance. She loves creating incredibly flawed characters because, well, nobody’s perfect. She received her B.A in English from North Carolina State University, and today, lives in southwest Florida with her husband and son.
