Presenter: Carolyn Howard-Johnson, 
                    Author of "How to Get Great Reviews Frugally and Ethically"

Date: Saturday, Jan. 28, 2017 at 11:15 a.m.

On Saturday, Jan. 28 at 11:15 a.m., Carolyn Howard-Johnson, author of the multi-award winning "HowtoDoItFrugally" series, will present a one-time only workshop entitled "How to Get Great Reviews Frugally and Ethically" at the 2017 Genre-LA™ Speculative Fiction Writers Conference, which runs Friday through Sunday, Jan. 27-29 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Culver City.

This workshop coincides with the release of Howard-Johnson's 334-page book, "How to Get Great Reviews Frugally and Ethically: The ins and outs of using free reviews to build and sustain a writing career."

"This book is so comprehensive that I'll only have time to cover two of its topics," said Howard-Johnson who is also an award-winning novelist and poet. "They are my two favorites--how writers can make credible no-cost reviews the center of a marketing program and how to manage negative Amazon reviews."
Howard-Johnson's previous Do-It-Yourself books include The Frugal Book Promoter, The Frugal Editor, Great Little Last-Minute Editing Tips for Writers, and The Great First Impression Book Proposal.

This is the 16th annual conference sponsored by the West Coast Writers Conference. "We invite presenters whom we consider 'Masters' who can help writers raise the level of their writing and marketing skills," said organizer Tony Todaro. "If a writer is looking for a unique educational opportunity, this is the one."

Howard-Johnson's comprehensive how-to books give readers the benefit of her years as a prolific author and instructor for UCLA Extension's renowned Writers' Program. 

"This is the first time since the early days of printing that authors have as much control over their own success as they are ever likely to have," said Howard-Johnson. "If there is one truth it is that marketing is marketing is marketing."
