OAKHURST — If you’re a published author, the next step is marketing your book, says local author and web developer Jennifer Moss. But, you may wonder, how do you begin that process? She’s got the answer for you, and it’s free.
On Saturday, Aug. 25, Moss presents the second of a two-part workshop at the Oakhurst Branch Library, focusing on everything an author needs to know to get a published book “out there” and noticed.
Your Book is Published. Now What? Marketing for Authors
The presentation is scheduled from 10:30 a.m. to noon in the Library’s Community Room, located at 49044 Civic Circle Drive in Oakhurst.
The first part of the workshop was presented by local author, book designer and illustrator Lauren Ball on August 11 at the Oakhurst Branch Library.
Jennifer Moss, an Oakhurst resident for more than seven years, says her workshop will cover public relations, social media, building your audience, reviews and ratings, book signings, blog tours, paid advertising and more.
“I love the craft of writing — and teaching it,” says Moss, adding that her workshop will combine her internet marketing skills with her experience as an author.
Moss has written three non-fiction books and a series of mysteries that currently includes four novels. She has also taught fiction writing classes at the Oakhurst Branch Library for both adults and teens since 2012.
Her work has also been published in Ms. Magazine, Working Woman Magazine and Red Herring. She also has a blog at http://jennifermoss.com.
Moss is a transplant from Los Angeles who says she has “always loved” the mountain community and moved here because the price was right.
The free event is sponsored by the Friends of the Oakhurst Branch Library. For more information, call the library at (559) 683-4838 or visit www.oakhurstfobl.com.
