I copied this from the Evite for SCBWI – November
SCBWI ( Society for Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators) Houston Meeting
Tracy Gee Community Center
Houston, TX 77042
Monday, November 1, 7:00PM
When we are thankful in November, some of the blessings we count include our SCBWI family. Its members are happy for us when we succeed and encouraging when we don’t. Another November blessing is the second half of the marketing workshop given by Bridgette Mongeon. You still have a week to do the homework she suggested in the first half. In case you need refreshing, here’s what it was:
1. Set goals for yourself, including big dreams. Be specific, make them doable, add a deadline. And refuse to be negative!
2. Research and brainstorm your market–who is the market that will buy you and your book?
3. Your platform–personal or oriented around your book? How visible are you? List three things you can do to become more visible and more credible. What’s stopping you?
On Monday, Nov. 1, Bridgette will finish up with her two-part presentation. She will speak to us about: Internet Marketing, Websites, Social Marketing, Search Engine Optimization and more. These are ways to use the Internet to make yourself more visible, more relatable, and an even bigger seller than you are now. Here’s a quote to validate each of you: “Sure, it’s simple, writing for kids…just as simple as bringing them up!” Ursula K. Le Guin. Hope to see you one week from tomorrow
