Come See Me Speak About Author Websites … This Saturday!

This Saturday, April 30th, I will be appearing as part of a panel at the American Society of Journalists and Authors’ 2011 Writers’ Conference in New York City.

At 9:45 am, I will be one of three speakers presenting at a workshop titled: Website Wording: 10 Things You Must Say.

If you’re in the New York area, you can still register for the conference at Here are just a few of the things that I’m going to cover in my presentation:

  • How to set goals for your author website … and build the site to meet those goals
  • Why (and how) to amass contacts through your site
  • What to do (and not to do) on your homepage
  • How to make it easy for people to buy the book through your website
  • Why it’s important to keep your website fresh and updated — and how to do that

Sometime in the next few weeks, I should have a video of the entire presentation to post here. And I’ll definitely do that for those of you who aren’t fortunate enough to make it to the workshop.

But I highly encourage any of you who are based in or around New York to attend … not only for my presentation, but for all the wonderful things you can learn this weekend. I plan on sticking around for a while after my workshop to attend a few others.

If you’re going to be there, please post a comment below and let me know. Maybe we can connect!
