Best-selling novelist, photographer, and writer workshop leader Angela Hunt (Christian Writers Guild/BelieversPress) will keynote Author Boot Camp, an author-training program with tracks for published authors and aspiring authors. Hunt’s 130+ titles have sold more than 4 million worldwide.
Author Boot Camp is 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Sunday, June 22, preceding the International Christian Retail Show June 22-25, at Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center. It offers courses in the essential work of book promotion and marketing.
Suzanne Kuhn of SuzyQ author promotion and retail development firm returns to host the popular event. Best-selling author Jerry Jenkins will encourage aspiring authors.
Following Hunt’s keynote session, Author Boot Camp splits into two sessions:
Track 1 for published authors features Suzanne Kuhn’s entertaining approach to author/retailer relations, book sales, effective use of social media, creative reader-engagement promotions, and events. She brings more than 20 years of experience in book retailing and promotion strategies to help your book get the attention it deserves.
The Aspiring Authors track invaluable writing and publishing strategies from Jenkins, of the best-selling “Left Behind” series and publishing veteran Dave Sheets, who co-own Christian Writers Guild and self-publishing company Believers Press.
Jenkins has written more than 180 books and sold more than 70 million copies. Twenty of his books have landed on the New York Times bestseller lists. Sheets, president of CWG and Believers Press, has more than 17 years’ experience in publishing leadership at top Christian publishing companies, and in self-publishing and print on demand.
