Power PR Workshop with Smith Publicity

Are you actively publishing books as an Indie author? Do you wish you had more sales?

Are you about to dip your toes in the self-pubbed world and wonder how you get noticed in the sea of other books out there?

Come to Utah. Spend a day of companionship and time on your WIP.
Then: On May 3rd: Join Smith Publicity marketing experts Corinne Liccketto, director of sales, and Lauren Covello, author publicist, for the Power PR Author's Workshop on May 3, 2014 in Salt Lake City!
Hundreds of books are published each day in the United States, and the hunt for readers is more competitive than ever. While most aspiring writers understand the importance of book marketing, few know how to begin or where to turn for help.
Smith Publicity believes media coverage is the key to building an author brand and sparking book sales. Since its founding in 1997, Smith has pushed books to the New York Times bestseller list, made first-time, self-published writers famous, and secured meaningful media placements all over the world.

Successful author publicity requires purposeful direction and laser-focused strategy. Liccketto and Covello will show workshop participants how to develop a strong and memorable brand, marketing plan, pitching angles, and more.

As the director of sales, Liccketto works closely with authors and publishers from around the world to develop strategic marketing plans, timelines and budgets to maximize their media exposure. Her consultative approach and "out of the box" recommendations make Liccketto a valuable part of her clients' success. Liccketto earned a degree in English from Ursinus College, with minors in Communications and Creative Writing.

Lauren Covello is a results-driven publicist with a knack for securing the media's attention. She has worked with a variety of clients, from first time self-published novelists to bestselling authors and independent publishers - including erotic romance publisher Ellora's Cave. Recently, Covello's clients have been featured in or on CBS Sunday Morning,, New York Daily News, Village Voice, ShowBiz Tonight,, The Huffington Post, and Yahoo! Shine. Covello graduated summa cum laude from Rowan University, with a bachelor's degree in public relations.
