Sharing an Example of Benefits Authors May Accrue When Speaking at Conferences

I have been speaking at writers conferences for something like fifteen years because I love being with writers and love helping them avoid the potholes I fell into when I first started marketing my own books.  But I thought I'd share this video with you because it is an example of the benefits authors who speak at conferences may get whether they speak for a fee or gratis. This was filmed by Author Learning Center at one of the GLAWS conferences I spoke at.  Imagine! Another way to share with writers I hadn't planned on!

Just a Quick Tip on Marketing Must-Haves for New Authors: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0rWUMd_c34w

PS: There are other interviews from experienced authors you can tune in to while you are there!  And you can leave tips of your own with links to your own blogs or Web site while you're there!  

PPS: These interviews were produced by Nicole Baker, manager of author education. Follow her on Twitter http://twitter.com/knicolebaker. And the Learning Center @authorlearning.
