Digital Age Secrets to Write, Publish, and Promote your Memoir
with Tessa Smith McGovern
Everyone can get published. There is a system, a series of steps to follow, that writers have been using for generations and that you can follow too. There’s no quick fix, no magic bullet, but instead a reliable, life-affirming series of activities that will get you where you want to go.
These days, all writers need to build a platform of readers, which means (at some point) creating your own website or blog, and posting excerpts of your work.
At eChook, we teach writers how to use the technical tools available to create their unique platform and reach larger audiences. All this can be done quickly and learned easily.
During the Telesummit, you will learn
* The system that until now only been available to writers signed by agents and legacy publishers
* Why memoir is often the easiest genre to get published
* How to make your memoir stand out from the crowd
* Technical apps and digital chapbooks
* Contests that move your career forward
