Gatekeepers Are Gone - "GET Published! Get publicity Quit Playing!" Get to the National Black Book Festival.
If you are serious about taking your book(s) to the next level, this is the conference for you. Early registrants receive a 15-minute, one-on-one session with the panelist of your choice.
Top book industry experts share information and strategies on how to make your literary breakthrough and turn your existing or future book(s) into a bestseller!
Conference includes three powerful sessions, lunch and a closing reception. Literary Breakthrough Conference sessions are as follows:
● Book Publishers: Hear from editors at major publishing houses on what they are looking for in a book proposal; how they determine which author and which books to publish; and how they determine whether an author receives a 2-book deal or a 5-book deal.● Book Marketers and Promoters: Hear from book marketing experts on how to receive maximum, targeted exposure for your book; how to get radio stations, newspapers and televisions to contact you for interviews; and why you should/should not aspire or expect to be on Oprah.
● Book Industry Agents: Hear from influential book agents on how to locate and identify the best agent for you; submit your book proposal; and how much of a book advance a first-time or repeat author should expect.
