Today’s world is literally at a writer’s fingertips.  A few keyboard strokes can open the Internet information gates to help you create stories that are distinctively credible and compelling.

This month:  “You’ve Got to Read This Book!” with Ann Narcisian Videan

The easiest, most effective way to find new readers for your book is to develop a strategy to entice them to care about its content and the author behind it. Why? People talk up extraordinary ideas. How? Spend two hours with Book Shepherd Ann Videan, a veteran marketing consultant, editor, and author. This Zoom workshop will help you generate unique, irresistible, marketing ideas to prompt readers to organically recommend your books to others. Ann guarantees you will walk away with ideas to use immediately.

Ann guides peers through the writing, editing, publishing and word-of-mouth marketing of both fiction and nonfiction titles.

A professional writer since 1981, she opened her own award-winning home-based marketing firm, vIDEAn Unlimited, LLC, in 1996. She has served as an editor for corporations, visionary entrepreneurs, and national publishers. She is also a novelist and co-founder of Absolutely Wild! Enchanted Faerie Portals & Other Whimsy, inspired by the Fae characters in her Song of the Ocarina novel. She composed and recorded an original music soundtrack to accompany her first novel Rhythms & Muse. Her three businesses support young writers and artists.

Ann showed up in this world with a pen in her hand, a song in her heart, and the desire to share with you. She adores creativity of all types, and especially the people who live it. She gathers friends like flowers, including authors, musicians, artists, and her husband and two grown-up children. The Colorado native lives in Mesa, Arizona, along with numerous invisible friends including snarky mythical creatures and magical story characters.
