PROGRAM: As the book publishing landscape changes quickly and radically, the topic of “promotion” is a mine field now more than ever before. What is encompassed in “book promotion”? Who is responsible for it? What are the tips and tricks for authors who have publishers? What about those authors who are going it alone? What role does social media play? How do we promote books in an increasingly crowded marketplace and a noisy media environment? Come with your questions and ideas and be prepared to leave with tools to strengthen your book promotion efforts.
Kalen Landow, a 21 year veteran of the book publishing industry, heads marketing and PR for Taylor Trade Publishing, the trade imprints of the Rowman & Littlefield Publishing Group. Prior to that, she has held positions with Chelsea Green Publishing, Ingram Book Company, Tattered Cover Bookstore, and a variety of other publishers (both freelance and in-house.) She has also served as the Executive Director of Publishers Association of the West. She is a life-long Coloradan, a social media addict, and an avid reader (mostly fiction.) For the second year in a row, she is on-track to read 100 books this year. Her autobiography (not yet started….) will be titled The Accidental Publicist and she will name names.
