9:30 am – 10:00 am   Welcome, Announcements

10:00 am – 12:00 pm   Marketing for Authors by Jenny Kate

We’d all rather be writing, but today’s authors must also spend time as marketing agents. Jenny Kate can help with that. In this class, Jenny will explore building an author brand, how to create compelling marketing content; and what you should include in your marketing plan (website, email, social, ads).

12:00pm – 1:00 pm   Lunch (brown bag or visit nearby restaurants)

1:00 pm – 3:00 pm   True Community Policing by Clint Blackhurst

Given the current state of law enforcement in our country, he will be discussing what true community policing is and how it could be the answer to ongoing issues. He will also discuss homicide cases he worked during his career, and the differences between the various areas of law enforcement from Federal, State, County, and City. He’s open to answering any and all questions. Having a mystery writer for a wife, he’s no longer concerned when he’s asked questions such as the best way to murder someone and not get caught.
