Branding for Authors & Their Books - Tomorrow Night at Author's Corner!!

Branding is a hot topic for authors, and fortunately it doesn't involve any scorching branding irons. For instance, Writer's Digest is featuring the topic in its January 2014 issue of the magazine, in an article titled "Branding Like a Master" by Jennifer Keishin Armstrong

Get up to speed on Author Branding by joining us tomorrow night for the November AUTHOR'S CORNER, sponsored by Mentoring/Made in the Valley.

We'll cover:
o  As an author, why should you know your brand?
o  What are the benefits of branding yourself and your books, and identifying your niche? How is this done?
o  How do you handle branding if your books are on different topics?
Learn all this and more!
