New Year, New Crash Course Webinars
We had so much fun partnering with LibraryReads last year on the Crash Course webinar series that we are doing it again in 2020! We are very excited to announce that our collaboration will continue with new genres & new presenters. However, we will still cover many of the same elements —why readers love the genre, tips for talking to fans, essential books to know about and recommend, information regarding trends and cross-over titles, and unlocking the secrets to the genre through appeal terms, subgenres, relevant themes, and more.
