Build a Writer's Dream TeamWorkshop Description: Marketing your book should never be something you do completely on your own. And your spot in publishing should not feel like a remote island in the middle of an ocean. Is it time for you to build a solid list of influencers and dream team members? Casey Herringshaw will share:

  • How to find effective readers and influencers.
  • What to expect from your Dream Team as they help you market your book. Does it stop with a simple book review on Amazon?
  • How to empower your sphere of readers with the advertising fuel they need to spread the word about your book, sell your book, and push your book to the top of the Amazon rankings in your category.
