Welcome to Chicago Women in Publishing

Upcoming CWIP Events:

March 18 — Book Promotion Deep Dive: Book Promotions that Work

You’ve either published a book or want to. Or, possibly, you’re in a position to help independent authors or other book publishers and want the inside scoop on the wide world of book promotion. You’ve studied up on social media. You’re not afraid to market yourself. But you know there’s more out there at your fingertips than Twitter and Facebook. Digital content and PR consultant Paula Krapf will help you sail past the usual marketing 101, to help take a deep dive into book marketing strategies for Goodreads, Amazon, raffles, giveaways, and much more.
