WELCOME TO THE BOOK MARKETING & PUBLICITY SHOW!
My name is Sam Missingham, founder of The Empowered Author, a community for authors. I have wanted to launch an event focused on book marketing for a long time, so I am delighted that The Book Marketing & Publicity Show, that launched in November, has had fantastic feedback from the authors who attended.
You can see some of the comments from authors below, but this probably sums up what attendees thought and EXACTLY why I launched the show - "I now feel I have a much better understanding of how I can give my book and its publicity campaign a good chance of success, and how I can actually enjoy that process by staying authentic and applying the new skills I've learned."
The show programme has three sections - author Q&As, expert workshops and meet the influencers - 22 sessions in total. You can now watch all of the replays at your leisure, and also every session has a transcription that you can download (something the attendees also found really useful).
If you don't feel confident with the marketing and publicity of you and your book, then these sessions will give you guidance, practical skills and some reassurance. All of the show's experts, authors and influencers explain in simple language what to do, where to focus your time and what actually works. I am a great believer that the more knowledge you have, the more confidence you will have in your own abilities.
To access the 22 sessions, with full transcipts and the ability to replay them as many times as you want until March 2023 now costs £79.
Why not boost your skills and confdience and buy access now.
WHAT AUTHORS THOUGHT ABOUT THE SHOW
WHO IS IT FOR?
The Book Marketing and Publicity Show is aimed at adult fiction authors who want to improve their knowledge and confidence.
There is plenty for self and traditionally published authors. Half of the authors I am interviewing are either currently self publishing or started that route and then switched to trad.
One author who has watched the sessions, said, 'It was great that it was as useful for self published and traditional published authors and there wasn't ever a sense of 'us and them'.
If you are just starting out on your writing career or you are much further down the line, the show will give you practical skills, an understanding of the tools you can use, where you should spend your money and much more.

I GET IT, YOU'D RATHER BE WRITING
My recent poll of authors confirmed what I have heard from authors over the years - a lot of you either actively hate marketing or consider it a necessary evil.
I don't need to tell you the reality of life as an author, and that more and more is expected of you. I am also not going to tell you that by attending The Book Marketing & Publicity Show you'll suddenly fall in love with marketing, but I can promise that you will gain confidence in your abilities, understand where you should be putting your energies and pick up tips, tactics and ideas that you can implement immediately.
