Producing Pitch-perfect Project Promotion


J. Wandres

Whether you have a publisher or plan to do-it-yourself, you must promote your Work. The key is to think of yourself as a company called A. Author, Inc. whose product is your work and your brand. By all means use virtual communications and social media. Our “TEDdie” talk will consider new, old, and Other-Than-Usual ways to promote your Work: When to launch a promo push?  Who are the target demographics? How to stand and deliver a best-selling PABS that converts browsers into buyers?

J. Wandres
With a B.A. in English from San Francisco State College J. Wandres began to write professionally in the 70s. He has sold hundreds of features—many with his own photos—to national, regional and corporate publications. He has edited four magazines (two earned awards for editorials and design), and he has designed and managed promotional and branding campaigns for new and emerging businesses. His two nonfiction books are: TravelSmart Pennsylvania and New Jersey (Avalon, 2000) and The Ablest Navigator (Naval Institute Press, 2010) He is at work on a travel guide to a little-seen aspect of Oregon.

Central Library   Central Library Eco-Roof Tours

In 2008, Multnomah County's Central Library became the first library in Oregon to feature an eco-roof.
Constructed with living plants and simulating the processes that occur in nature, eco-roofs absorb rain
water like a meadow in a natural setting.

The Central Library eco-roof is not accessible to the public. Frequent backstage tours allow you to see
the roof from windows overlooking the roof.

The 20-minute tour begins at the first floor Welcome Desk.
Registration required; register online, in the library or by calling 503.988.5234.
