How to use the web to sell books

Do you think of the internet as a big waste of time, looking at cat pictures when you should be writing? It can be. But it can also be the fastest way to find and engage a new audience and actually sell books. This session is all about focusing your time online to drive readership and book sales. From your author/illustrator website to your Goodreads presence to tweeting - we’ll give you some great ideas!

Angela Misri is a YA author who spent 14 years as CBC Radio's digital expert. She teaches digital journalism at Ryerson University and U of T.

      Joyce Grant is a picture book and middle-grade author. She has created award-winning marketing campaigns, ads, and strategic marketing for corporations, and formerly co-owned a small ad agency.
