Essex Authors Day – Workshop 1: Navigating Book Marketing and Publication Day Launches with author Lizzie Chantree

About this event

Join this exciting book launch and marketing session, with international bestselling author of ten books, Lizzie Chantree. Lizzie will be talking through how she plans her online and in-person book launches and promotions and how her books hit the bestseller lists. The seminar will be full of ways to keep your marketing fresh and how to take the stress out of each publication day.

Lizzie started her own business at the age of 18 and became one of Fair Play London and The Patent Office’s British Female Inventors of the Year. She writes books full of friendship and laughter, about women with unusual businesses, who are stronger than they realise.

Reserve titles by Lizzie Chantree free of charge with your Essex library card.
