Unlock Your A Game is a full-day writers’ workshop that starts at square one and lays out a personalized branding and promo plan for genre fiction careers of every stripe. Give us a few hours and we’ll revamp your promo mojo.

Publishing gets more competitive every day, and no two authors are alike. Bringing your A game is essential whether you’re a baffled newbie or a seasoned pro. Playing to win should be fun, but knowing the tricks and traps lets you bend the rules and stand out in a crowded field.

Play harder and smarter. Using simple game theory and practical exercises, we’ll help you plan your best next move. We’ll tackle every component of a winning author platform: Brand, Presence, Market, and Project strategy. You’ll leave our class with the tools you need to tailor your career and unleash your own unique A game.

This class will tackle the foundations of an A game in its first three sections and then pull the components together in the fourth:

BRAND: Your piece in the game.

PRESENCE: The rules of engagement.

MARKET: The board on which you play.

PROJECT: A coherent A game played with the class.

Attendees will leave with all the components of a basic promo plan.


BONUS EXTRA: Blurb Slam! Damon will take a look at selected book descriptions from attendees and talk about what works and what doesn’t. (Number limited to presenter’s discretion. Blurb must be provided in advance).

FEE: STAR members FREE.

Non-STAR members $55 (join RWA and join STAR to get in free)


Continental breakfast with coffee, beverages, and snacks provided.

There will be a 90-minute break for lunch on your own.
