You Better Werk
Join us to hear practical advice from Edgar Villanueva on how he went from one (fabulous) book launch party to the launch of an organization and capital fund in under three years.
- Show some love – to yourself. Get comfortable speaking about your book and accomplishments because, surprise. people need to hear your ideas from you.
- Build a community in a way that suits you. Whether it’s on social media or a virtual book club, it behooves you to leverage your book into new ways to find an audience and engage with your supporters.
- Hire a professional, if you can. Yes, PR can be expensive, but if you’re able to invest additional funding towards professional support, even if it’s just to help you refine your book pitch, it will be well worth the money.
