I recently launched a coaching program where for anywhere from $5 USD to $75 USD per month you have access to a publicist to help guide you as you do your own marketing and publicity for your work. OK. I admit it still involves me, a publicist. But this is something more affordable for everyone and I love that it’s an option now! Anyway, it’s pretty new, but already have 13 subscribers and we’ve gone over all kinds of stuff from what authors should have on their website, to organic social media growth, to the ideal timeline for promoting your book. We have coaching sessions several times a month, depending on the level at which you join. It’s been going great and helping authors

I am doing an in-depth online workshop on self-promotion for all authors and comic creators. This isn’t just for the self-published, either. If you’re published by any house, big or small, you know how much work falls to you for your own book marketing and publicity. In fact, it’s telling that my clients primarily fall in the small-to-medium publisher category, with the next largest being major publishing houses. (And yes, I have a few self-published/owner-created comics clients, too!) Right now there are two dates: Thursday, March 27th at 7 p.m. Eastern Time and Sunday, April 13th at 1 p.m. Eastern Time (get those tickets here). I will do this again a few times a year as long as there is interest, so if you
