Second APE Makeover on a Google+ HOA Feb. 13th
Guy Kawasaki and Shawn Welch, co-authors of APE, held their first Google+ hangout on air (HOA) recently and helped five self-publishing authors with their projects. It was a huge success and they’ve decided to host another event to help other APEs learn how to publish a book.
Here are the details:
1. Three writers from the APE Google+ will be selected for a one hour HOA with Guy, Shawn and Peg Fitzpatrick.
2. You must be available on Wednesday, February 13th at 6 pm PST/9 pm EST.
Items to be critiqued:
1. Book title/subtitle
2. Book cover
3. Book description
4. Amazon presence and book if available
4. Social media presence
Our goal is to help three APE self-publishers with their works in progress or completed self-published books. Writers can get stuck in many places in the Author, Publisher, and Entrepreneurial stages and we’re going to help them over those bumps. If you are interested in being selected for this HOA book critique, please leave a comment below. We’ll select the three writers over the weekend and announce them in the APE community.
This process proved to be helpful for our last five writers as well as other people that watched the HOA live and afterwards.
The APE team, Guy, Shawn and Peg, will be holding events each week, rotating between Google+ HOA and Twitter chats, to help as many writers as we can with their questions about the APE process. APE has grown from being a book to a community and now globally attended social media sessions helping writers in the U.S., Australia, Italy, and Spain.
We look forward to this upcoming event and hope that you can join us! Again, if you’re interested in being selected for this APE makeover, please leave a comment below with some information about your book. (deadline February 10th at 5 pm EST to be considered for this makeover)
UPDATE: Betsy Talbot, Eric Ralph and L.A. Johannesson were chosen for this week’s APE makeover.
