I will be speaking at the Romance Writers of America San Francisco Chapter’s special event on Web Publishing for Authors at the Pyramid Alehouse, Brewery and Restaurant in Berkeley, California, on March 8, 2008, from 8:30 AM to noon. The program is open to the public but reservations are required with fees $25 for non-members reserving their seat before March 5.
You don’t have to be a romance writer to attend. The program is open to all writers who want to use web technology to boost their careers. The morning workshop will help you develop a website and blog to promote you and your work and establish your reputation as a professional writer and author. The program will cover online tips and techniques for authors to promote their books, enhance their online presence, and build a fan-base community using blogs, forums, podcasts, video, and other social media.
The program panel features myself, discussing blogging and the power of the blog as a promotional, networking, and fan-building tool, and promoting WordPress; Tom Johnson, an artistic marketing strategist covering design issues; and Rachelle Chase, an award-winning erotic romance author, business consultant, and host of Chatting with Chase.
I wrote The Art of the Artist Web Design Collaboration on the Blog Herald as an introduction for the event to help artists and writers see the potential a blog offers over a static website.
