Writing a book and getting it in the book shop window isn’t what it used to be. Writers need to spend their precious time writing, not marketing. Would you like to have a team behind you to do the marketing and promotional work, helping you find the audience your great book deserves?
Libboo invites you to a networking event on February 28th from 7:00pm to 9:00pm at the British Consulate in Kendall Square at 1 Broadway, 7th floor (please bring an photo ID) – map – Libboo is bringing authors, promoters, social media gurus, bloggers, marketers and key advocates together for an evening of networking. This will be an informal “speed dating” event to help pair authors, who aim to be discovered, with promoters.
A.B. Bourne worked closely with Danny Lewin at Akamai Technologies on strategic deals with IBM and Oracle, and managed Akamai’s IPO, raising $234 million in 1999. The author graduated from Yale College and the University of Michigan Law School and practiced law in Boston. She lives in Massachusetts with her family, consulting for start-up technology companies and writing The Second Secret of Edwin Hoff.

It’s been a while since our last blog post (sorry about that!), but we’ve been super busy at Techstars. Although it’s taken over our lives, we’re loving every minute of it.
Of course, we have to take breaks occasionally and there’s nothing we enjoy more than messing with Fernando.
That’s all we have time for today, but keep an eye on the blog because we’ll be announcing something really awesome for those of you in the Boston area.
If you are visiting us for the first time, join our growing community of readers, writers, illustrators, editors etc. at http://www.libboo.com. Libboo is 100% free and fun! Be sure to “like” us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
