Thinking of writing a business book? Or, have you already written one, had it published, and were surprised (positively or negatively) with the results? Disillusioned or enchanted by your eBook?
The publishing industry is an ever-evolving, constantly changing beast, equally filled with challenges and pitfalls as it is with growth, personal achievement, and monetary success. So, how does one best navigate the labyrinth? What's the best way to achieve your goals via publishing? How do you create your ultimate book?
We'll be hosting our 7th Annual Author PowWow from January 13-15, 2013 in Austin, TX. This year's theme is The Ultimate Book, and we'll talk not only about the ins and outs of the industry, best practices, and forward strategies, but attendees will also work on their idea - which is the core to the whole effort, and can greatly influence long-term success for anyone that wants to change the world.
Here's the overview:
A discussion on developing good ideas
Featuruing Erika Andersen (author of Leading So People Will Follow), John Moore (author of Tribal Knowledge, owner of Brand Autopsy), and Ray Bard (Bard Press)
A discussion and presentation on sales, marketing, and social media
Featuring Tom Wilson (Wiley), Barbara Cave Henricks (Cave Henricks Communications), Rusty Shelton (Shelton Interactive), and Spike Jones (co-author of Brains on Fire).
About his talk: Every book is a project, and it's important for the author to be its manager. From production to promotions, project management is the key to success. Often times, though, they fall apart because they aren't being run well, have bad habits embedded into them and lack any milestones to refresh the team. Net Minds CEO Tim Sanders will talk about how authors can greatly improve here, and why it relates to eventual sales figures and career longevity.
***And, a very Special Guest live webcast, featuring one of the most popular authors and thinkers of today, answering attendee questions for 60 minutes.**This will be amazing.
Also, copies of Erika Andersen's, Nancy Duarte's and the Special Guest's latest books will be given to all attendees.
It's often said of events that 'seating is limited,' but we intentionally keep this group on the small side to facilitate conversation, quality, listening, and connectivity. So, don't hesitate. We'd love to see you there.
"Why go to an 8CR Pow-Wow? Simply put: there's no other event
like it. Where else can you talk book strategy with other authors,
receive direct input from publishers, and - but wait, there's more -
meet the folks who run the world's best business book distributorship?
The gang in Milwaukee puts on a good show... make the time to attend!" - Chris Guillebeau, (author of The Art of Non-Conformity)
"My first year attending the 800-CEO-READ Author Pow Wow, I met the agents who changed the course of my career. The next year, I met the team who helped me launch and promote my next book, Fascinate. Last year, I gained the very specific insights that are helping to catapult my business in new ways. This event isn't just about authoring business books-- this is the must-attend conference for anyone dedicated to big ideas, high expectations, and long-lasting results." - Sally Hogshead (author of Fascinate)
