The session is designed for writers of all skill levels and includes “how to” information to identify the root cause of declining book sales on Amazon, as well as tips on how to use a marketing calendar to turn sales around. . No registration is required. The meeting is open to the public on a first come, first served basis. The session is free.

McFarland says, “Authors spend tons of money getting their books on Amazon, so understanding why sales are dropping and how to increase sales is key to advancing careers.”

Aspiring authors and published authors alike will enjoy McFarland’s workshop on the basics of the “marketing side” of Amazon book launch, and how it affects whether sales go up or down. The workshop offers a free marketing calendar template and a list of resources.
