The Author as PR Machine

Last year, Chris was lucky enough to speak at NSW Writers' Centre one day symposium funded by the Copyright Agency (CAL).

The event is called Open Access: Selling Your Work in the Digital Age

Date: Saturday 6 September, 10am – 4pm

Open Access focuses on how writers promote themselves and their work in the constantly changing world of publishing.

For writers and publishers, the challenge is always how to get a book into the hands of readers. Whether you self-publish or go with a mainstream publisher, whether it’s an ebook, print or both, the challenge of promoting yourself and launching your book into the world remains.

Chris will join other authors on a panel called The Author as PR Machine.

The Author as PR Machine (3.00 – 4.00pm)

These days promoting your book is very much part of the author's role, whether self-published or by a small or large publisher. A panel of authors discuss how they have gone about promoting their books either working alone, with a publisher or publicist. Featuring Summer Land (Summerlandish), Bruce McCabe (Skinjob), and Johanna Baker-Dowell (Business & Baby on Board).
