PRESENTER: Mary Walewski

Friday, May 4, 3:00-4:00

Your author platform is more than how many people follow you on Twitter. Publishers won't sign an author who doesn't have a platform. If you self publish, you still need a platform to sell your books.

What is it? An author platform is the ability to sell books because of your reputation and who follows you. It's also your contacts and connections, your influence and expertise. It's who you are and who people perceive you to be. Without a platform, your success as an author is less than good.

The good news is you have the beginnings of a platform right now. In this presentation, Mary Walewski of Buy The Book Marketing will show you the steps to growing your author platform and how to nurture your platform to publishing success.
