Session 1: Find Your Reader Match: Marketing for Romance Authors

Your novel is out in the wild, go you! Now how where are your readers? Marketing your book is a necessary part of an author’s life and it can be a bit overwhelming – but it can be fun, if you know where to start. This workshop is all about setting the right marketing goal for you so you can use the available channels strategically and let you find and connect with your readers while staying authentic to your author self. This class will also include a brief overview of European Union’s Global Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and what it means for authors.

Speaker: Ana Tejano

Ana Tejano has been in love with words and writing ever since she met Elizabeth Wakefield when she was in Grade 3. She’s been blogging for years and has contributed several non-fiction pieces in print and online publications using her other name, which isn’t really a secret identity. When she’s not writing romance, she works as a marketing communications manager for a payroll and HR company, extending the marketing things she learns at work back to her author life. She’s an active member of CFC Singles for Christ, lives in Metro Manila with several dogs and cats, and is always trying to catch up on sleep.

Session 2: Welcome to Querying!

This talk is an introduction to querying literary agents. It includes the dos and don’ts of querying, a query letter writing exercise, and query letter critique from the speaker.

Speaker: Tarie Sabido (via video)

Tarie Sabido is the Chair of the Philippine Board on Books for Young People (PBBY), a nonprofit organization committed to the development and promotion of children’s and YA books in the Philippines. She is also interning at two New York City-based literary agencies and on the editorial reading team for Foreshadow, a serial YA anthology created by New York Times bestselling authors Emily X. R. Pan and Nova Ren Suma.
