Giveaway for Debut Authors- Master Your Marketing Class



I’m super pumped about teaming up with Writer’s Atelier to teach another class with them. This one is called Master Your Marketing.

What does this class have to offer? Four weeks of targeted marketing to meet an author’s needs. The fun part is that attendees can take all four weeks or just one week depending what their marketing needs are.

As I was putting together this course, I was thinking about how much I could have benefited from all of this as a debut author! Over the years as I launched a YA trilogy and am now launching a middle grade, I’ve been wanting to help other authors. So… I’m excited to share with you that I’m:


giving away one week from this course to 2 debut authors!
