Authors today not only have to write a good book, but help it get into the right hands. Learn how to toot your own horn, write your own blog, do social media, and plan your own publicity from a panel of successful local authors.

About The Panelists: Matty Dalrymple, Jeannette de Beauvoir, Beth Kanell, and Sarah Smith are members of Sisters in Crime New England, a group of authors, readers, publishers, agents, booksellers, and librarians bound by their passion for the mystery genre and their support of women who write mysteries. Matty Dalrymple is the author of the Lizzy Ballard thrillers, the Ann Kinnear suspense novels, and the Ann Kinnear suspense shorts. Jeannette de Beauvoir is a Cape Cod-based, award-winning author and Booksense Book Of The Year. de Beauvoir writes mystery and historical fiction that’s been translated into 12 languages. Beth Kanell lives in northeastern Vermont, with a mountain at her back and a river at her feet. She writes poems, hikes the back roads and mountains, and digs into Vermont history to frame her “history-hinged” novels: "The Long Shadow," "The Darkness Under the Water," "The Secret Room," and "Cold Midnight." Her poems have appeared in various regional publications and online. She has several blogs and Facebook pages, and believes that publicity today involves becoming engaged in community at multiple levels. Sarah Smith is an Agatha winner and Massachusetts Book Award winner for her novel, "The Other Side of Dark." She has written a bestselling adult mystery series set in the Edwardian period -- two of the books were named New York Times Notable Books of the Year. Her standalone novel about the Shakespeare authorship, "Chasing Shakespeares," has been made into a play. Her latest novel, "Crimes and Survivors," is set in 1912 and involves the sinking of The Titanic.
