MARKETING TIME MANAGEMENT for AUTHORS

CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE RWA

This workshop is filled with tips and tools to help the author respect and give fair attention to every aspect of the authors life, but also protect their extremely important writing time. This workshop is a full month, is for authors and writers of all levels, and covers the following topics:

· Your Social Media Time

· Your Blogging Time

· Your Writing Time

· Your Personal Time
