Digital Symposium II: The Nuts and Bolts of Success

I am thrilled that Austin SCBWI will be having a second annual Digital Symposium, and based on the lineup and workshops, it's looking to be even better than last year! How is that possible, you might ask? Well, this year we're trying to go a little bit deeper. Turning presentations into more of a workshop environment where individuals can work through ideas and leave with something even more tangible!

Sounds great, right? And I'm not just touting it because I'm one of the presenters. I am excited to attend workshops other than my own!

Book Trailers: Bringing your Story to Life with P.J. Hoover

Think books are just for the page? Not anymore. In the crazy world of marketing we live in, book trailers have become not just a luxury but a necessity. You don’t want to be left behind! Join author P. J. Hoover as she introduces the world of book trailers, talking about what works well and what falls short. No matter what software you have, P. J. will demonstrate the flow for how to create your very own book trailer from the text to the purchase of music and stock imagery. She’ll discuss different ways to get your book trailer noticed and what impact that can have. Come with your solid story idea and an open mind (and your laptop if you have one), and prepare to see your book in motion.
