Featured Speaker: Jami Albright on Newsletters

Newsletters, why they’re important, how to build them, when to build them, and why sending them isn’t annoying.

Jami Albright, Award-Winning Rom-com AuthorWe’ve all heard that an author newsletter is essential. They’re the best channel to sell your books and create a direct line of contact to your readers, in a way that can’t be matched on social media.

Jami Albright absolutely excels at connecting with her readers. Join us to learn how she consistently launches her books as category Best Sellers through savvy newsletter nurturing.

Jami Albright is a born and raised Texas girl and is the multiple award-winning author of the Brides on the Run and the Small-Town Royalty series—they’re both sexy, swoony, and pee your pants funny. If you don’t snort with laughter, then she hasn’t done her job.

CRW 2022 Kick-off Meeting

It’s the first meeting of 2022! YAY! So many new things coming our way so why not start out with a plan? We’d all love to hear how everyone plans their writing for the day, month, and/or year. Some of us never really plan (like me, says TJ Finn, our Vice President of Programming) but would love to hear how you plan.
Come armed with your planner (Just kidding LOL).

But whether you live and die by the Kanban Board, love your SMART goals, or prefer to ponder what the day shall bring each morning over a cup of coffee, we know you something to contribute.  So join us Saturday.

How to Growth Hack a Bestseller
with Liz Pelletier

Join publisher and editor Liz Pelletier as she demonstrates a new and innovative way to develop, write, edit, and market a book with the greatest chance of making your next release a best seller!
THIS IS A FOUR-HOUR WORKSHOP.

Growth what? Growth hacking is one of the hottest buzzwords in marketing today, responsible for start-up viral sensations like Dropbox, Instagram, Facebook, and the original Hotmail. Few people realize that to guarantee success, the principles of growth hacking must be implemented long before a product is released. But how can an author apply these techniques when writing/self-editing/marketing their novel to better ensure a hit?
