On Live Event Launches for Your Book with Beth Barany and Tracee Lydia Garner
In my weekly live #askaWritingCoach chat this week, Tracee Lydia Garner and I chatted about live events to launch your novel, including theme, costs, who to invite, and where to host the event. We also touched on online events like Facebook parties and on-video events, like Blab! We also gave away prizes. Tracee gave away a $15 Amazon gift card to a lucky winner! I gave away one digital copy of one of my books, Twitter for Authors, or A Cupcake Christmas. When you show up live and ask questions, you have a chance to win prizes!
