Advanced Marketing Strategies for Serious Writers, Authors & Experts

Monday, December 28, 2009
7:00 to 9:00 pm

Ready to boost your book sales and income in 2010? Come learn as two full-time, self-published authors share their strategies for generating revenue with their books.

- How to generate extra income via mentoring and coaching services
- When to use virtual assistants and how to delegate the workload
