The California Writers Club, Sacramento Branch’s Writers Network presents Cindy Sample, the national bestselling and award-winning author of the Laurel McKay Mysteries. She is a former mortgage banking CEO who decided that plotting murder was more entertaining than plodding through paperwork. She retired to follow her lifelong dream of becoming a mystery author.
Her first humorous romantic mystery, Dying for a Date, was released in 2010. The sequel, Dying for a Dance, was a finalist for the 2012 LEFTY award for best humorous mystery and winner of the 2011 NCPA award for Best Fiction. Dying for a Daiquiri released in October 2013 was a finalist for the 2014 Silver Falchion Award for Best Traditional Mystery and a 2014 LEFTY award finalist for best humorous mystery. Dying for a Dude is scheduled for release on November 1, 2014.
Join Cindy Sample as she discusses some of the promotional techniques that have led to her becoming a national bestselling author. She will share creative marketing strategies, unique promotional opportunities and indie publishing tips that can lead to greater discoverability and killer book sales.
“Two of my books hit the top 100 Amazon bestseller list and Daiquiri hit the top 10 on Barnes & Noble Nook Books,” says Sample. “If I can do it, anyone can!”
