Author Blogging 101 at BAIPA

by | Feb 12, 2011

I’m off today giving a presentation to the Bay Area Independent Publishers Association (BAIPA).

The talk is on Author Blogging 101. I thought I might speak about book design, but the demand from the members I talked to was blogging and social media more than anything else.

Happy to oblige, I’ve put together a few dozen slides to introduce interested authors and self-publishers to this social media publishing format, and I think we’ll have fun.

In the meantime, here are some of the articles I’ve written on author blogging and the power of building a robust author platform. Enjoy.

    I enjoyed the presentation. I can’t find a link to the [PowerPoint?] presentation you showed during your talk. You promised it would be available as a download for one week only.
