One moment in the media spotlight can make all the difference for nonfiction authors. It can take you from being a first-time author to a sought-after expert if the media spotlight is positioned just right. And with all that attention, your book sales are bound to get a big bump!
The real question is, HOW? Most authors have no idea how to harness that power to expand their audience, boost their credibility, and actually move the needle on book sales. Without extensive – and expensive – media training to get those insider secrets about how to take it to the next level, the moment can pass the average author by.
It’s situations like this that make me so grateful that I met Mary O’Donohue, from Authors in Media. She’s an expert who can help authors transform their careers through great publicity, and she’s sponsoring the 2021 Women in Publishing Summit. We are super-excited to hear her exclusive insights at the Summit and beyond!
Who is Authors in Media?
How did she get the inside info to propel authors to center stage? Mary was a producer for THE OPRAH WINFREY SHOW for 12 years. She’s also a best-selling author herself and helps authors use traditional media to increase their influence, impact, and income. As a best-selling author herself, she knows the importance of using the power of media to promote your book and your message.
While media exposure is great for any author, it’s especially helpful for nonfiction authors. The media landscape can be confusing and complicated, and it’s full of traditional gatekeepers, putting indie authors and new writers at a particular disadvantage.That’s where Mary comes in. She has access to behind-the-scenes secrets and insider tips on how to pitch your work, present yourself to each different media source, and how to work with them once you’re booked to ensure you get asked back. Knowing the rules of the game makes all the difference when you’re pursuing traditional media, and that’s exactly how Authors in Media has helped so many writers grow their careers.
Why We Love Authors in Media
We’re excited to welcome Mary of Authors in Media as a sponsor of this year’s summit. Media can be an essential tool for any author, especially nonfiction writers. A lot of experts focus on social media and what it can do for you. And sure, social media is the shiny new object. But Mary takes a step back and shares how traditional media can help propel your book forward – if you know how to use it. Our interview with Mary was exciting — we talked for over an hour about authors and media opportunities. She really gave me a TON of awesome strategies to share with my clients, and I know she’s going to get you all thinking, too. The interview will be available during the Women in Publishing Summit and it’s one you don’t want to miss. Mary and her company has been a great asset to our sponsor lineup this year and we can’t wait to share the interview!
