Well, I’m off driving down to central California today for the Central Coast Writer’s Conference, taking place in San Luis Obispo, on the coast roughly midway between Los Angeles and San Francisco.

I used to drive this coast often, and it still has the majestic, primitive beauty it has long been known for.

At the conference I’ll be talking about book launches, a subject that’s always of interest, and book covers.

Book Cover Design

My presentation on book cover design was quite a challenge. There’s no way I can teach a roomful of people how to design book covers in 60 minutes.

So the challenge was to explain how to look at covers with a more educated eye, and with some easy tools to use to gauge how well the cover is doing its job.

Book Launch

Book launch is one of the most stressful, confusing times for new self-publishers. In this presentation we look at the tools available to help get organized, and one pathway for a sequence of events that can lead to a successful launch.

You should check out my Speaking page for upcoming events. Live presentations, especially at conferences where there’s plenty of time to network outside the sessions, are invaluable opportunites.

If you have a group that’s planning an event, I’d love to talk to you about speaking at your event, and sharing my passion for indie publishing and helping authors get up and running in the brave new world of digital publishing and social media marketing.

If that’s you, use my contact form to get in touch.

Next week I’ll have a full report. See you on Sunday.
