Relationship and content marketing. When should you start building your fiction marketing platform? ASAP! Let’s talk author branding, identifying your target audience, and author platform building. Come prepared with pen and paper or a laptop for exercises.

Lecture will be based off of Kate’s book, Novel Marketing.
