Back by popular demand, Susan Toy of Alberta Books Canada will examine the 10 vital elements of marketing and promotion. After her appearance at our 2011 'Weekend' we had people begging for copies of her presentation, so it's no surprise that registration for this one is filling up quick. Here's a quick bio:
Susan Toy has been a bookseller, an award-winning publishing sales representative, a literacy teacher, and is now a writer and promoter of fellow authors and their books through her company, Alberta Books Canada.
Through Alberta Books Canada, Susan represents authors directly, helping them find promotion for themselves and their books, seeking out new readers, and assisting them in making wise career decisions.
Susan displays books for authors and publishers and speaks about Alberta authors at library conferences throughout the province.
She created the writing contest, Coffee Shop Author, has sat on the Board of Directors of the Fernie Writers' Conference, is a member of the Calgary Distinguished Writers Program steering committee, and a member of the board of directors for the Writers' Guild of Alberta.
Susan is in the process of setting up an ePublishing company called IslandcatEditions and will be publishing the first eBook this spring.
