On May 28th I went to a terrific program in Walnut Creek, CA, sponsored by the Northern California SCBWI, featuring Author Mike Jung talking about how he developed his online presence BEFORE selling his first book! His talk, Don’t Be a Pinhead: Building on Online Presence Before Landing a Book Deal, showed how he uses the internet to connect with people and become part of the online community. His first book, Geeks, Girls and Secret Identities, comes out next year from Arthur Levine Books. For photos and highlights of his talk, read Edna Cabcabin Moran’s post on her blog Just Sketch. It will inspire you (and me) to do a better job of building your own online presence!
