BABJ learns book marketing and self-publishing best practices

The Baltimore Association of Black Journalists hosted our November 2016 meeting at Maryland Public Television in Owings Mills.

About 20 people attended the Saturday afternoon workshop “Promoting Your Own Book” with public relations veteran Cherrie Woods. She authored the book “Where Do I Start” and shared her insight on how she advises clients to promote their work.

Woods lead the group in activities to identify audience, branding and literary type. Attendees worked in groups critiquing current book titles, covers, author headshot photos and marketing.

 

 

 


Following the presentation
Woods was available for a meet & greet where she paused for photos as she sold and signed copies of her book.

BABJ members also gathered outside Maryland Public Television to congratulate and pose for photos with Charles Robinson III. The veteran journalist was honored with a star on the “Walk of Fame.”
