September HOD All-Day Workshop

This upcoming workshop from our local chapter is a chance for authors to learn all about working with the media and promoting our books in a professional manner! If you live close to northern Alabama, we hope you can join us.

Heart of Dixie Presents: Putting On Your Game Face: How to Play Well With The Media

Have you ever wondered how to approach a reviewer about your upcoming release? How to set up a blog tour? How to promote your work and your name without appearing unprofessional?

At Putting on Your Game Face: How to Play Well With the Media on September 10, 2011, RT Magazine Review Coordinator Stephanie Klose and RT Magazine Web Editor Morgan Doremus will discuss the ins and outs of media promotion. They will give us a behind the scenes glimpse of the workings of RT Magazine, how their reviews are created, and the importance of the non-review content of the magazine. They’ll also discuss pitching your books for review to various review avenues, how to establish professional contacts, how to handle interviews, and how to present yourself to all manner of media.

This all-day workshop will be held on September 10 at the Huntsville-Madison County Public Library in Huntsville, AL. Cost is $10 for HOD members and $15 for non-HOD members, which includes lunch and an afternoon snack. Seating is limited. Registration is required.
