Members Helping Members: As the name implies, this session will focus on ways that we can help each other to market our books. Often, in looking for marketing or PR opportunities, we see an opportunity that might not be right for our books, but that might benefit other members. Other members might have books that would work well together for co-marketing opportunities. The goal of this session is to familiarize members with books published by other members, so that we can be alert to opportunities to help each other. Every member attending the meeting should prepare a 5-minute overview of their books, with a goal of familiarizing other members with their books (this should NOT be a sales pitch). Members attending the meeting should also bring sell sheets or other marketing materials to share, and email title and contact information to Sheila Ruth, sruth@imaginatorpress.com. This opportunity is only open to members attending the meeting.
