In author Jen Malone’s previous career as the New England Head of Promotions and Publicity for 20th Century Fox, she instituted grassroots, low-budget movie marketing campaigns for both blockbuster and indie films. In this webinar, she’ll apply lessons learned there to promote your books, specifically the importance of understanding a target market and of fighting the urge to make your marketing campaign be all things to all people. We’ll discuss how to identify the best markets for your books and where and how to reach that audience. To conclude, we’ll seek inspiration in examples of the outside-the-box marketing efforts of dozens of fellow kidlit authors.

Many authors balk at marketing their books because doing so makes us feel too “used car salesman-y”. In this webinar, we’ll examine ways to flip our mindsets and instead find methods to spread the word about our books in an organic, thoughtful manner that feel natural. We’ll cover why so much of a book’s marketing falls to an author versus the publisher and how to cope with the pressures this brings, how to prioritize tasks (and which to let go of entirely), and how to stay sane when there is always something more that could be done.
