Join me on February 6, 2021 for one or both of my sessions for the Bay Area Independent Publishers Association. This a Zoom meeting and anyone can attend. Scroll down for additional pricing details and how to register.

Presentation Session: begins at 9AM Pacific ($20*)

Topics include:

  • How important are reviews to the success of your book?
  • How do you get more of them?
  • How do authors avoid running afoul of Amazon’s review policies?
  • How to leverage good reviews.
  • How to handle negative reviews.
  • 10 sources for soliciting reviews.
  • Distinguishing between editorial and customer reviews, and editorial review best practices.

Workshop Session: 1PM to 3PM Pacific ($40*)

The session will be primarily Q&A and authors, or soon-to-publish authors, are encouraged to bring their greatest challenges on this topic.

  1. Sources of reviews
  2. Using author mailing lists
  3. Acquiring and using testimonials (blurbs/endorsements)

All attendees will receive a PDF of The Book Review Companion, in advance, to help get prepared. So in this particular case, it is important for you to register at least 24 hours in advance.

*Non-member pricing. Anyone can join BAIPA and the prorata membership fee is $30 through April 30, 2021. After that the annual rate is $99.
