Starting the Engine of Your Author Platform: Effective use of Social Media to Build Your Author Brand

Most authors do not know how to tap into social media and waste much time on repetitive marketing tasks that don’t seem to work. Then wonder why their books are not selling. Instead, you need to create an “engine” to automatically distribute your marketing content to key sites and reduce your online workload.

Come join Wendy Van Camp as she explores how to interlock two popular social media networks to a webpage and grow your brand as an author at this convention workshop.

Thu Jul 4 4:30:pm
How to Train Your Steam Engine
Zephyr
In literature, trains are often settings for robbery, murder, general intrigue, escape or romance. Outside of children’s fiction, however, how often do they become mechanical “characters” (rather than backdrops) in stories? How can an author bring steam engines and other large mechanical devices to life on the page?

Sat Jul 6 11:30:am
Recreating the Fairy Tale
Meridian F
Fairy tales continue to rise in prominence in popular culture. They are everywhere – poetry, novels, musicals, TV, movies, music, even advertising! They are imagined, re-imagined, stood on their heads, flung into space, moved into the 21st century and beyond. What is it about the fairy tale that makes is so compelling? Where will we take them – or they take us – next?

Sat Jul 6 12:45:pm
Broad Universe Rapid Fire Reading
Aurora Boardroom
Members of Broad Universe will read from their individual works. Also with chocolate!

My science fiction themed jewelry and Scifaiku art prints will be for sale in the art show.  Do stop in and see all the wonderful art there.
