Ninja Book Marketing to Awaken the Force within YOU and Your BOOK!

This is a 4 hour workshop that requires an additional upgrade cost of $50 per person if you are attending the full AME event. If you are not attending the full AME program, the cost for this session only is $100.00




Contrary to what many authors believe, writing the book is only 10% of publishing … it’s the 90% marketing that will make or break book success.

Gone are the days of national book signing tours where an author travels from city to city to meet fans and be featured on TV, radio and in print. Most authors are homebound with their favorite cup of coffee or tea and constant laptop companion. To the surprise of a traditionally published author and bewilderment of the self and indie author, it’s up to the author to be in charge of all marketing and publicity.



Whether you are traditional or indie, it’s the author who is responsible for the majority of book marketing. That means you. You need to think of your book as a product that you are bringing to the market. Expect hot sheets in this intensive workshop … authors are encouraged to bring their book if it has been published.

The knowledge, tools, tips, and techniques delivered here will impact every decision you make along the way. Your takeaways will include:

· Create a Marketing Plan that’s a fit for your buyer and your book.

· Identify which social media platforms to use and which to dump.

· Why and how to use the cyber town hall to position a book launch.

· How to ride the “draft” of your competitors and become a Ninja spy.

· How to get your name out there and get recognized while keeping your sanity.

· Discover “freebies” that will tickle your book marketing fancy.

· How to create branding that waves a flag to your buyers.

· How quirky can get followers to open your Tweets, Postings and Blogs.

· How your author profile can kill your book sales and how to fix it pronto.

· Why authors should create a no-brainer newspaper.

· Why QVC and The Shark Tank are important to all authors.

· Why taking a contrarian position can soar media presence and book sales.

· Develop a social media network, making the most of community events.

· Resurrect a limp and tired book (and sometimes author).


Book marketing means creating chatter and buzz about the author and book. Is it work? Is it scary? Is it confusing? Yes to all. Yet it can be fun. It does take commitment and hot spit, but it turns you into a marketing machine… one step at a time.

The Book Shepherd® Judith Briles will save you from taking a wrong turn in the confusing book marketing maze.
