Ingrid Ricks shares her proven eBook marketing secrets in this information-packed session.

Ingrid will show us:

How and where to generate reviews
How and when to leverage KDP Select
How to utilize the promotional blogs
Where to spend your advertising dollars

The value of cross-promotion
How to generate ongoing PR
Stand-alone stories vs. story collections
The importance of an online presence


Ingrid Ricks is the author of indie memoir "Hippie Boy: A Girl's Story," a New York Times eBook bestseller recently acquired by Berkley, a division of Penguin Random House. The book is scheduled for nationwide paperback release January 2014. She also wrote "Focus," a memoir of her journey with the blinding eye disease Retinitis Pigmentosa, and a short story collection, "A Little Book of Mormon (and Not So Mormon) Stories."

Ingrid's essays and stories have been featured on Salon and NPR. Along with writing, she is passionate about leveraging the new world of digital publishing to give teens a voice. Using "Hippie Boy" as a catalyst, she recently co-founded WeAreAbsolutelyNotOkay.org, a nationally recognized program to empower teens by helping them write and publish their personal stories.
