Ottawa Romance Writers Monthly Events
Our members-only meetings are a discussion of Ottawa Romance Writers business, upcoming events, and the goings-on in the romance writing world (1:00-2:15pm).
Our workshops are not always specific to romance. They cover the business of writing, craft, writer’s life, and research. Usually free for members and $20 for guests from 2:30-4:30pm (depending on workshop, see listings for details). Seating is limited, reserve your spot at Eventbrite.
Events usually take place on the first Sunday of each month at Ben Franklin Place, 101 Centerpointe Drive, room 1A opposite the library (subject to change, see specific events to confirm dates and locations).

How can you sell more books every day?
Paid advertising works great, but what do you do to promote your books if you can’t afford ads? Can you make money without spending it? Skye’s experiments show what happens when theory hits the real world. In this workshop packed with workable strategies and data, she’ll share proven methods to grow your book sales without spending a dime.
When you start making money, invest in your business to sell even more books. We’re going to talk about how to make effective Facebook ads so that you’re always finding new readers. Topics include: effective ad images with limited design skills, copy that makes readers one click, and how to target audiences that are right for your books. Google can tell you how to boost a post, we’re going to talk about how to make ads profitable specifically for fiction authors.
Skye Warren is the New York Times bestselling author of dangerous romance with over 1.5 million books sold. Her author business started as a five-figure struggle with long hours and a constant fear she wouldn’t make enough to pay the mortgage. Investing in marketing and Facebook ads is what transformed her business into a seven-figure business working four hours per day. It’s her goal to empower romance authors to sell more of the books they work so hard to write. She makes her home in Texas with her loving family, sweet dogs, and evil cat.
