We are pleased to have author and success coach Deborah Riley-Magnus present on the topic of marketing at the at The GLVWG WriteStuff Writer’s Conference™, March 24-25, 2017.

Her nonfiction—Finding Author Success, Cross Marketing Magic for Authors, and Write Brain/Left Brain—focuses on helping authors by teaching them how to bridge the gap between the creative writer and the marketing author.
Deborah’s fiction is imaginative and mystical, beginning with the Twice Baked Vampire Series books 1 and 2, Cold in California and Monkey Jump. The first of a 2 part Cowboys and Angels supernatural romance saga is entitled Lucifer’s Guide. Deborah is currently working on a supernatural new adult series, The Lost Race.
As an Author Success Coach she produces several pieces monthly for various websites and online publications. She teaches online and live workshops, clinics, and boot camps. She writes an author marketing industry blog and coaches authors, one-on-one, for sales success. Deborah belongs to several writing and professional organizations.
She has lived on both the east and west coast of the United States and has traveled the country widely. She is a native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and recently returned after living in Los Angeles, California for several years.
Her Friday, half-day workshop she calls, DOWN THE AUTHOR MARKETING RABBIT HOLE. Here is what she has to say about it.
“Take an adventurous magical tour through your own abilities to sell more books! At the bottom of the rabbit hole, you’ll learn the difference between selling and allowing people to buy. Uncover your book’s true potential with both obvious audiences and potent secondary target audiences. Understand the power of Cross Marketing to broaden your fan base. Perfect the identification and location of YOUR book’s true target audiences with the ©SuperGenre technique. Learn how to tighten your message for impact and response. And develop your personalized Author Marketing Flow Chart.”
On Saturday Deborah will have two sessions. The first it titled 10 TOOLS FOR AUTHOR MARKETING SUCCESS. Of this she says, “Today’s authors, no matter how they’re published, are bombarded with baffling responsibilities for their own success. Everything from understanding social media to building powerful platforms and creating effective marketing strategies is now on their shoulders. It only takes 10 little tools to help you focus, stand apart from the noisy crowd of shouting authors, and become successful. This session helps structure your marketing activities so that you will be effective…AND have time to write, too.”
The second session is THE CARE AND FEEDING OF YOUR MARKETING MUSE. Again we quote her. “We listen faithfully to our writing muse, but often ignore our marketing muse because most authors are unaware that marketing is a creative process. Just as your muse leads you through ideas and concepts for your writing, she whispers fantastic directions for your marketing. Learn new and exciting paths for your marketing efforts. Take your marketing to new venues with flare, and to those tired overused venues with a brand new punch. Learn the tricks for creating and keeping your marketing momentum alive. Trusting your marketing muse is the first step to finding true book sales success!”
