Teaching & Training

Be Your Own Book Publicist Course

I am offering a brand new training service for authors at all stages of their career. Using my extensive experience in PR and literature journalism, I have put together a training course for authors teaching them how to carry out their own book publicity.

The four week course is carried out on a one-to-one basis online and includes information on:

– developing your own publicity strategy
– developing your own author brand – including information on how to tell your own backstory in a way that will engage readers, the public and the media.
– developing your online presence – including information on how to market yourself online (including social media, websites, blogs etc.), tips on how to develop relationships with bloggers and detailed information on how to create a blog tour for your book.
– pitching yourself and your book to the media and the blogging/vlogging community – with information on how to sustain media coverage throughout the year.

The course is interactive. Course participants will be set homework every week and will receive detailed feedback from me. They will also be offered a thirty minute one-to-one telephone chat after the course is completed, where we can discuss your publicity strategy and anything else you’d like to go over.

Cost of four-week course: £200

Next course date: 7th August 2017. Further dates can be arranged, on request.
