Laron Glover -- Graphics design do-it yourself tips and fun ideas/strategy for book promotion
Tuesday, October 14, 2014, 7pm 
Angelo's Restaurant, 1830 130th Ave NE, Bellevue, 98005, 425.883.2777 


Graphics design do-it yourself tips and fun ideas/strategy for book promotion.   What works?  What doesn’t?  What’s changing in the market?   Learn how to create a marketing plan that works for your book and your situation.  In addition to strategy, she’ll share her market observations and (between now and the workshop) interview her clients and writing-friends to uncover real-life, in the trenches experiences.  From new ideas to perennial favorites, from no-cost options to tap-the-401K-expensive, she’ll share what successful authors are doing to promote their books, the lessons they’ve learned, the things they’ll definitely do again . . . and the things they won’t.


Laron Glover learned three things in first grade:  

a)     paste is NOT a viable substitute for a healthy snack,
b)    how to make a perfect 5-pointed star out of paper, and
c)     how to tell the teacher what she wants to hear and getting her to buy into the story (thereby preventing an unfortunate phone call or trip down the hall).

The first two bits have not translated into anything inherently useful, but the last bit has served her well.  She’s loved the art and science of marketing ever since.  After graduating from college and spending many years in corporate jobs and as a consultant, she launched her own business in 2007 (www.ninthmoon.com).  She works almost exclusively with authors, creating promotional products and providing graphic design services.  Because she does not want to come across as schmaltzy or self-serving, Laron actively avoids hosting workshops on book promotion.  As such, she’d like to point out this workshop is really about making 5-pointed stars. Please bring a few sheets of colorful paper, a pair of scissors, and plan to come away with a new skill. 


We meet for dinner beforehand (at 5:00) at Angelo’s in the banquet room. If you would like to join us for dinner, please email dana@danadelamar.com so we can give the restaurant a heads-up about how many people we will have.
  • Do not feel obligated to buy dinner at the restaurant. However, since the restaurant is giving us the space for free, it would be nice of us to have dinner there when feasible (no pressure though; we know some folks don't have the time or have budgets to stick to).
  • If you can't make it at 5:00 for dinner, you can still order dinner if you get there later; just please be there to place your order by 6:30-6:40 so that we don't interrupt our speaker.
We'd love to see you there! :)
