Hoot Hoot! It’s OWL time again!

Now, I don’t want to be the bearer of bad tidings, but the fact is, the year is almOWLost half gone.  If you haven’t done as much as you planned on your writing in 2017, it’s time to lift your game!  Fortunately, we can help you do just that, with two fantastic OWLs in July.

The first is all about good beginnings:

Focus on the First Five – Get your first five pages submission ready

Let me quote from the presenters:

‘A reader will not “wait for it to get good”, you must wow them now, immediately and right away.

In Focus on the First Five, Robb Grindstaff and Samantha Bond will shine a spotlight on your first five pages. They’ll teach you how to start your story in a way that grabs your reader and won’t let them go.’

Does that sound good to you?  It does to me!  To register (and for all the info), follow this link.

The second is for when you’ve finished your book and want the world to know about it. It’s on a subject close to all of our writerly hearts – selling books!

How to Sell More Books with Email Marketing

Email marketing Lana‘Whether you are traditionally published or self-published, there’s one challenge common to both: selling more books. With email marketing, not only do you (not your publisher!) have control of your list, but it’s cost effective (one of the cheapest forms of marketing around) and with a little help, easy to do.’

Sounds good to me!  And the presenter is our very own Lana Pecherczyk, RWA webmistress and marketing guru.  It’s never too early to start building a list and never to late to improve your promotion.

To register, click here, or on the course title above.

Both courses run from the 3rd to the 30th of July, so check them out!
