AuthorMBA

By Josi S. Kilpack

As has been stated, several of us PEGs went to the Eden Writers' Conference last weekend. It was really well done, and heavy on marketing and PR. They had representatives from a company called AuthorMBA that focuses on helping authors "Brand" themselves and get their name out there in the right way. I love the name of their company--AuthorMBA--because it points out just how important the business aspects of writing and publishing are. They are only growing in importance and it's exciting to have such talented women (though there might be men on there too) offering up their know-how so that we can stay ahead of the game.

My head was spinning with all the information they gave and after the conference I checked them out and read up on them a little bit. I find them very intriguing and they have a daily blog that has given some great advice. Us writer types are always looking for tips, tricks, and advice, right? So, in the spirit of sharing something I found to be of value--I invite you to check out AuthorMBA.

I did! And love it. Will be back often. Have added it to my Favorites list on my blog. Have also added Writing on the Wall. Can't imagine how I didn't add this already--it's chock full of great information and reminders we all need. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for adding the link. I checked it out too. Marketing is definitely something I need to figure out more about.

I've taken a few of their workshops and have found them to be quite helpful. Their website is on my blogroll and I make sure to read them on a daily basis.
