Lisa London on 10 Ways To Make Your Author Platform Stand Out…In A Good Way

Saturday, September 16 @ 4 p.m. EST

  • How would your life be different if you were able to generate more book sales?
  • Would you be able to quit that day job you hate?
  • Be able to spend more time with your kids?
  • Splurge on that vacation you’ve been trying to save up for?


The key to selling more books is trust, and building trust with your potential customers starts with making a killer first impression through consistent & beautiful branding. Ever heard the phrase: A picture is worth a 1,000 words. Of course, you have but are you putting that into practice or just grabbing whatever random design you find on your free Canva account and then expecting that to convert into big bucks? This Webinar will review the 10 Must-Haves every professional author should be incorporating into their marketing plan to up-level your online presence.

Hello! I’m Lisa and I help romance writers sell books via online marketing + beautiful branding

Lisa is teaching a class in October on Vlogging for Authors and in December on Beautiful Branding for Authors.

Sunday September 17 @ 1PM EST

Many writers, even experienced authors, sometimes find themselves taking a story in a direction they didn’t plan. While this can be serendipitous and lead to more interesting reading, it needs to be done in a controlled manner. One of the biggest mistakes new authors make is trying to do too many things in one story. In this webinar you’ll receive tips and tricks to help you move your plot in an orderly manner and avoid going on tangents.
Cassandra Carr is a multi-award winning romance writer. Cassandra Carr lives in Western New York with her husband, Inspiration, and her daughter, Too Cute for Words. When not writing she enjoys watching hockey and hanging out on the computer.
