    IWOSC/SPAWN August 5 Meeting

    Thousand Oaks

    The August 5 meeting of IWOSC/SPAWN Ventura County will host indie publisher/author Christopher Locke speaking on “The Path to Book Marketing Success & How to Build Buzz.” The meeting is held at Goebel Adult Center and begins at 6:30 pm. Everyone is welcome.

    An effective marketing plan is essential to a book’s success, but it’s also one of the most daunting aspects of being an indie publisher or writer. Independent Book Publishers Association Member Liaison & author/publisher Christopher Locke will discuss the successes and challenges he’s faced as he’s marketed his own books (the YA series, The Enlightenment Adventures). He’ll also share the story of his publishing journey, which began with him leaving his fruitful, decade-long career in television to follow his dream of embarking on the world of independent publishing.
    Christopher will give helpful tips about the IBPA marketing programs that are the best fit for author publishers and independent publishers, including the program he runs, NetGalley. It can be a powerful tool to build buzz around your titles and garner reviews, and Christopher will share insights into maximizing a book’s experience on the site.

    Bring your marketing questions as Christopher has been through the trenches and succeeded.

    The meeting will be held August 5, 2019 at the Goebel Adult Center, 1385 E Janss Rd. Thousand Oaks, CA 91362 from 6:30 to 8 pm. The fee is $5 at the door. Refreshments available so plan to stay and meet other area writers.

    IWOSC/SPAWN Writers’ Meeting is a joint gathering for writers, authors and book lovers presented by the Independent Writers of Southern California (IWOSC) and the Small Publishers, Artists & Writers Network (SPAWN) a national literary nonprofit based in Ojai, CA.

    Christopher Locke worked in the television industry for over a decade before pursuing his passion project, The Enlightenment Adventures—a YA book series that combines thrilling entertainment and education to inspire the next generation of animal advocates. Christopher published the books as an author publisher, founding his own indie publishing company, Fathoming Press, in the process.

    This new career path led him to another dream job of joining IBPA—the largest trade association for independent publishers in the United States. As the Member Liaison, he assists the 3,200+ members as they travel along their own publishing journeys. One of the major projects he oversees is the IBPA NetGalley program, which generates buzz and garners reviews for indie publishers’ titles.
