~Afternoon Session~

Brand Plan with Damon Suede

No two authors or careers are alike; our styles, strategies, and even notions of success vary wildly, and yet cookie-cutter promo persists. In this class we’ll skip the one-size-fits-all Band-Aids by:
– establishing a customized measure of success.
– identifying your approach to genre fiction promo.
– mapping band assets and an approach strategy.
Make sure your brand is working for you not against you. You’ll leave this workshop with action items specific to your skills, experience, and career goals so you can unleash your A game.
