May all-day Mini-Conference – Rise of the Digital Age Author with Kristen Lamb


The publishing paradigm is changing faster than any of us can keep up. The Digital Age has opened up all kinds of opportunities, but with new opportunity comes increased competition. How can a writer stand out in a sea of “published authors?” Branding is very different in the Digital Age and if we fail to appreciate the changes in branding, then all our social media efforts are a giant waste of time. This session will explore why branding is different, why traditional marketing does not sell books, and will equip participants with tools to make them successful in the Digital Age.

Kristen Lamb is the author of the #1 best-selling books “We Are Not Alone–The Writer’s Guide to Social Media” and “Are You There, Blog? It’s Me, Writer.” She has trained thousands of writers and her methods are responsible for selling hundreds of thousands of books and elevating even unknown authors into the ranks of mega-best-selling success. In her free time, Kristen trains sea monkey for the purposes of world domination.

Come listen to her speak on a variety of subjects valuable to writers of every genre and level.
