Yes, believe it or not, marketing is as creative as writing. Honest! And once an author learns the power of real creative marketing, there’s no limit to what can be accomplished. Learn to release your distaste for marketing, come to the bright side of creating book sales, and discover multiple ways to keep your marketing muse as creative and exciting as your writing muse.

Deborah will also co-lead a read and critique session on Friday evening, participate in an informal feedback-style session, and be signing books.
