TUESDAY August 16th – SPECIAL SEMINAR – Tricia Sanders will present “Creating and Maintaining Your Amazon Author Page Using Author Central

In this seminar, we’ll not only discuss how to create and maintain your Amazon Author Page using Amazon Central, but we’ll discuss the purpose of the Amazon Page and how you can use it to provide a “one-stop” shop for your books that are listed on Amazon. We’ll look at some successful author pages and discuss the elements that will make your Author Page a useful tool in your marketing arsenal.

Tricia L. Sanders writes cozy mysteries and women’s fiction. She adds a dash of romance and a sprinkling of snark to raise the stakes. Her heroines are humorous women embarking on journeys of self-discovery.

Tricia is a recent transplant to Texas, but she’s still an avid St. Louis Cardinals baseball fan, so don’t get between her and the television when a game is on.

A former instructional designer and corporate trainer, she traded in curriculum writing for novel writing, because she hates bullet points and loves to make stuff up. And fiction is more fun than training guides and lesson plans.

The Thursday September 1st Regular SGWL Meeting will include a presentation by Alison Macor titled “Ghostwriting for Fun and Profit”

Interested in becoming a ghostwriter? I’ll share my own journey as well as tips for finding success in the field. I’ll also suggest how to attract potential clients, offer ways to market your skills, and discuss what to expect once you land your first project.

Alison Macor received a Public Scholars grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities for her new book Making The Best Years of Our Lives: The Hollywood Classic That Inspired a Nation (University of Texas Press, 2022). She’s also the author of Rewrite Man: The Life and Career of Screenwriter Warren Skaaren (UT Press, 2017) and Chainsaws, Slackers, and Spy Kids: Thirty Years of Filmmaking in Austin, Texas, which won the 2012 Peter C. Rollins Book of the Year Award.
