Featured on Friday: 2014 Berrett-Koehler Author Event post image

Last year I had the opportunity to travel to Atlanta for the Berrett-Koehler Book Marketing Workshop. Because the Weaving Influence team works remotely, my time in Atlanta for this event allowed me to actually work next to the “boss lady” (a.k.a. Becky Robinson) for two days, meet clients face-to-face (rather than email), and as an added bonus, sneak in a quick trip to the Dwarf House for some lemon pie.

Another bonus was the opportunity to learn from fellow authors and book marketers about the best way to promote yourself, your books, and your message. My favorite speaker (outside of Becky, of course) was Simon Bailey. Not only did he keep me in stitches, but he encouraged me to continue to make connections and set bigger goals. Just because you reach one dream doesn’t mean you need to stop looking for more.

I was also able to meet members of the Berrett-Koehler staff (pictured above, along with Becky and me), who were all equally delightful and stood ready to help and support those who were ready to take the next step in publishing. If you’re considering a publishing house for your manuscript, talk to the folks at BK.

July 17-18, you have the opportunity to hear from book marketing experts, authors, and leaders at the 2014 Book Marketing Worshop held in beautiful San Francisco. I would highly encourage you to sign up now and make plans to attend this important and helpful event. Take advantage of being in the presence of published authors and book marketing experts, ask questions, and plan to take notes because there’s a lot to take in in a short amount of time.

Share the Invitation

What could be better than attending this event? Attending it with a friend! Pick up the phone or send an email to a friend or colleague who has been talking about writing a book for far too long. Invite them to join you in San Francisco as the first step towards making their book dream a reality. If you want to invite your online connections there are graphics to use, tweets to send, and ideas for spreading the word – all found HERE. Check it out today!

Don’t Forget:

I won’t be able to attend the event this year, but I hope to hear from many of you who did, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to have attended last year.

You Tell Me! Have you been to a BK Marketing Event before? What did you enjoy the most?
