Don’t miss our next meeting on June 6th for author, Jeff Kildow’s
workshop: How to Market Your Book and Yourself
In his workshop, Jeff will present ideas, techniques, and contact information authors can use to influence the market for their book locally.
In keeping with the well-known fact that most of the marketing for a book must originate with its author, he will offer a few free or low cost ideas authors can use to publicize their work while targeting the broadest possible audience.
Events uniquely related to a book’s subject matter can be used to publicize it as well as sell the books. He will discuss what needs to be done in preparation for such events, and what should be done during the activity. Lastly, an overview of some of the available social-media outlets will be presented, along with some do’s and don’ts.
Jeff Kildow began writing in junior high school, but never published the many short stories and novelettes he wrote. Following four years of Air Force service, he attended engineering school where he edited Space, the school’s science fiction magazine. During a long career as an aerospace engineer, he continued writing as he amassed a large library of aviation and military histories. He is an expert on the aircraft of WWII, Korea, and the Cold War. He is a member of ACFW and CIPA, and a former officer of the ACFW South Denver chapter.
His first book, America Under Attack, is a WWII alternative history and the first in a series of Air Force officer Joel Knight adventures. Its sequel, Red Menace, is being edited prior to submission. A third novel, Suez!, is in work.
We meet from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Highlands Ranch Public Library, 9292 Ridgeline Road in the second floor Quiet Reading Room.
