Are you a writer who knows you need marketing/social media to promote yourself and your books but loathes the idea of doing so? Are you social-media phobic in general? Join Jenna Blum for this morning workshop and blaze ahead with confidence! Known industry-wide for her out-of-the-box promotion, Jenna has been using social media to connect readers with her work since Zuckerberg was a zygote, and she’s excited to share her pro tips and hacks to make marketing and social not only easy for you but fun.
