Backspace Writers Conference, May 27, 28 & 29, 2010Buckle up for the fastest hour of social media how-to for authors, when the Backspace Writers Conference turns me loose from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm on Friday, May 28th.

I’m bummed that my time slot is up against Karen Dionne’s Agent-Author Relationship panel, featuring Scott Hoffman, Norb Vonnegut, Jeff Kleinman, and Elizabeth Letts, but I figure it’s their bad luck too. (If you guys want a few minutes just grab me in the hallway or at the bar.)

One hour is going to fly by, so this is what you can expect:

1:00-1:10: Setting goals, measuring results and time management
1:11-1:20: How to listen effectively and why
1:21-1:30: Essential Web Presence Components
1:31-1:45: Business Development 101
1:46-1:55: Q&A

Attendees will also walk away with an updated version of my ever-evolving cheat sheet, Social Media Starters for Authors, and one hour of personal coaching whenever they need it.

Social Media Tips from Kodak

I’ll see if I can hunt down some sweet freebies too, Like Kodak’s tremendous Social Media Tips guide.

If anybody has any suggestions for must-have social media references or web-based resources, please let me know.
