Learn an Overlooked Writing Skill: Free Training on July 27

copywriting for authors

Writing a compelling book is the most important step toward the goal of a successful writing career. But selling your books can be a challenge no matter how strong your story may be.

When it comes to a sustainable author career, copywriting is a skill even I could improve upon. (Since 2011, I’ve been writing about the importance of this skill.)

Bryan Cohen is a Chicago author who has written more than 40 books, and 300 book descriptions for other authors. He teaches thousands of writers at all levels how to improve their marketing skills.

Bryan has agreed to team up with me on a free training for my readers on Wednesday, July 27, at 2 p.m. Eastern. This live training will teach you simple systems to write sales copy that’s as impressive as your story; it will help you improve your book descriptions, advertising copy, and emails to readers.

When you show up live, you’ll be able to participate in a Q&A session with Bryan to answer all your copywriting questions. If you can’t attend live, a recording will be made available for you to review after the session.

Near the end of the session, he’ll tell you more about his fee-based course on copywriting that provides more intensive and comprehensive instruction. Full disclosure: If you register, I end up receiving a percentage of your course fees. I recommend his instruction because I trust it and think copywriting is one of the most overlooked skills for writers.
