May 4: Andrea Hubbert – Romancing the Press; How to Make the Media Swoon Over Your Stories

This step-by-step session is crafted for indie romance writers who dream of seeing their name splashed across various media outlets. During our time together we’ll cover the five steps you’ll need to take to make this happen:

  1. Create a wish list of publications: Begin your courtship by identifying the publications that make your heart flutter. I’ll help you pinpoint and prioritize highly targeted outlets your ideal readers are consuming with their morning coffee or before bed.
  2. Research the right contact person: Much like discovering the perfect character for your novel, unearthing the right contact within your chosen publications is key. I’ll help you navigate the maze of editorial staff with finesse, so you’ll be able to pinpoint those whose interests resonate with your themes to ensure your pitches land on welcoming desks.
  3. Brainstorm compelling pitches: Your pitch is your love letter to the editor. It’s your chance to woo them with your story. I’ll help you explore crafting proposals that meld passion with professionalism and intrigue with insight.
  4. Assemble your press materials: Just as your characters dress to impress for their pivotal scenes, your press kit must be equally enchanting. I’ll show you the art of assembling press materials that reflect the soul of your work — from tantalizing press releases to author bios that tell a story of their own.
  5. Make the submission: Submitting your pitch is your grand gesture. This step is where timing, precision, and a touch of serendipity converge. I’ll teach you how to send your pitches in a way that compels and delights.
