Redmond, Oregon, January 26, 2009—Central Oregon Writers Guild’s February 26, 2009 meeting features local author Paty Jager, who will speak on the topic “Promotion 101—The Nuts and Bolts of Promoting You and Your Writing.” Paty will talk about the ways writers can use the internet to promote their work, as well as tips on setting up book signings. Paty says, “Promoting one’s writing is time consuming, but if writers want people to know about their work, it has to be promoted. The good news for writers these days is the access to the whole world via the internet.” Paty’s presentation will focus on the tools available to writers, and the best ways to promote their writing.
