FEBRUARY 6, 2024. A NEW YEAR. A NEW DATE for our writing event.

I’m thrilled to announce Lorraine Ash’s online Book Publicity That Makes Sense/Cents has been rescheduled for February 6, 2024.

12:00-1:30 PM Arizona time.   2:00-3:30 PM EST

Offered by The Eastside Writing Room of Tucson, Arizona 

    • Open to anyone- anywhere
    • FREE—Limited to 40 people
    • Participants will get a Zoom invitation to the presentation

Learn about myriad types of publicity from reviews, digital ads, and book signings to reader reviews, podcast interviews, media outreach, and more. We’ll also tackle the big questions—whether to hire a publicist, how to convert awareness to sales, what actually works in the age of the Internet, and how much to spend.

I highly recommend attending this. I will be flying that day, but I have already implemented many of the suggestions Lorraine shared because she is my editor. Lorraine’s knowledge, research and delivery is outstanding and a wonderful way to kick start your efforts in the new year. ~ Nicole  Smith, author, Diagnosis Dementia

My own experience with Lorraine Ash began in 2004 when I attended a Memoir Workshop led by Lorraine. I didn’t realize I was writing a memoir but her experiences and activities opened up the vista that my family stories could/would become a memoir. And we were off. Her journalistic experience, her own experience as an author and presenter, and her generosity in sharing her knowledge, were huge stepping stones for my growth as a writer and published author. And it’s only gotten better. After taking this workshop with the Write Group of Montclair (my old stomping grounds) I knew I had to bring Lorraine Ash to AZ – and beyond. Prepare to be WOWED!  ~ Ethel Lee-Miller

AND AGAIN- we’ve got a spot for you
