Planning On Peaking

I'm planning on peaking this weekend.

Pikes Peaking.

I'll be one of the Conference Faculty at Pikes Peak Writers Conference, being held in Colorado Springs, CO April 25th to 27th.

Apart from getting to spend some time with an amazing group of writers and other presenters and speakers, I'll be leading the following workshops/talks:

FRIDAY:  My Journey Through Traditional & Self-Publishing

A look at my journey through traditional and self-publishing, how success in one area has lead to opportunities and success in another and the importance for writers to embrace both as they build their careers and grow readerships globally.

SATURDAY: More Things In Heaven & Earth

An examination of the importance of embracing all options as a writer - traditional publishing plus self-publishing as well as why it is critical for writers to ensure their work is available in as many different retail locations (both online and bricks and mortar) as possible to reach the broadest possible audience. The title takes it's cue from an oft-quoted phrase I use:  "There are more things in heaven and earth than are dreampt of on the shores of the world's longest river."

SUNDAY:   Have Kobo, Will Travel

An exploration of the global opportunities available to authors who publish to Kobo. An exploration of where Kobo Writing Life authors are from and where, globally their books have sold. A look at details of what sells well in what global markets and how authors are leveraging KWL to grow new audiences in Kobo's 190 countries and through their thousands of retail partners around the world.
