Techniques to Advertise Your Books Online with Joanne Pence

Your book has been published. It’s available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and maybe in bookstores. Now what? How do you let people know it’s available? How do you market it? Joanne Pence, the author of over thirty novels, will be discussing the current techniques being used to advertise your books online, including Amazon Marketing Service ads, Facebook ads, email services such as Bookbub, Freebooksy, and group giveaways such as the “Ryan Zee” and Instafreebie promotions. This will be a jam-packed talk!
Joanne Pence is the award-winning, USA Today best-selling author of two mystery series, supernatural suspense, historical fiction, and romances. She is a one of the founding members of the Idaho Writers Guild (having served on the board for many years) and is past president of the local Sisters in Crime chapter.

  1. Really enjoyed the roundtable discussions. Went back for double doses of 'Story Structure' and 'The Importance of Place', but the one that surprised me the most was 'Television Scriptwriting' with Royce. It's not something that I had ever looked at before, but the difference in perspective between a novel, television script, and even a movie script are pretty fascinating.
    I had planned on handing out cards with my upcoming book, 'Blademage Adept' (Now in Pre-Order on Kindle), but left them by the comment basket due to the chaotic nature of this particular luncheon. Not many cards got taken, but they must have been noticed, according to the spike on Amazon. Thanks for the support, guys!

  2. Your book looks great Chris! Congrats on your writing success!

  3. I'm not able to make it to the luncheon tomorrow. Please donate my ticket fee to someone else or use it as a general donation. Sorry to miss!

  4. I'm new to Idaho Writers Guild - just joined yesterday. I plan to attend the luncheon on Sept 20th. I don't see a place on this page (or elsewhere) to pay in advance.
