AuthorPreneurs: Developing a Media Pitch
June 30 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm PDT
Developing a Media Pitch
You sent a press release to your favorite newspapers, magazines, radio, and TV outlets announcing the publication of your new book and…nothing. Not a single request for interview or story. Have a fireside chat with author and publicist Jennifer Coburn about how to craft a winning media pitch for your book. The world really does need to know about your work; you just need to figure out how to pitch the story to assignment editors. (Hint: It’s not that you have a new book.) After 20 years working with nonprofits in media relations, Jennifer began working with authors five years ago to help them earn media coverage that moves the needle on sales.
Please join us on Wednesday, June 30, 2021, at 1 pm PDT/2 pm MDT/3 pm CDT/4 pm EDT with author and publicist Jennifer Coburn as she presents Developing a Media Pitch.

About Fireside Chat:
By now, we hope you have heard the exciting news that we have been invited by billionaire entrepreneur and Shark Tank TV star Mark Cuban and brilliant entrepreneur and former Node.io CEO Falon Fatemi to host an Adventures by the Book literary-themed series on their innovative new Fireside Chats, an interactive live podcast platform.
Fireside Chat features content creators like Adventures by the Book who are dedicated to facilitating meaningful dialogue to keep us connected, much like President Franklin Delano Roosevelt did during WWII with his radio fireside chats.
Like a cross between a live podcast (except no video so you can stay in your jammies!) and a call-in radio show where you can hop “on-stage” and have a live conversation with your favorite authors and other readers, our Adventures by the Book Fireside Chats will feature book discussions, live chats with authors, NovelNetwork book club visits, and other engaging and meaningful literary experiences.
