Producer, Frank, Author of Annie Tillery Mysteries, is expanding The Writer’s Dream, a Long Island author’s forum, to Cablevision’s Channel 20. This addition is an important marketing tool for author’s, enabling them to get the word out about their books and related projects to a wider audience. Originally the show aired only in East Hampton. The move to Cablevision includes most of L.I.     Frank’s Blog, on her website details the TV show’s journey from inception to the present.

The Writer’s Dream is a marketing opportunity for authors. This half hour show, recorded by a team of trained director and camera crew, in an attractive and professional studio gives them a platform to speak about their experiences as writers, publishers and marketers. Today authors find themselves confronted by a new publishing industry, where the opportunities to self-publish, be your own agent, and market your product abound, and they are taking on much of the responsibility for their book's promotion. Authors now rely on social media to market. The Writer’s Dream experience provides the author with the interview which is aired on Local TV, and purchase of a DVD of the show for $10.00. The DVD can be edited and shown on the author’s website, facebook and youtube pages, as well as in presentations. The Writer’s Dream Channel can be viewed on YouTube. Visit Frank’s facebook http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Writers-Dream/144688198966801. The show is a strong tool, allowing authors to link TV air time to their social media and other marketing strategies.

Frank is a member Long Island Authors Group, and has reached out to Long Island Romance Writer’s, Long Island Children’s Writers and Illustrators, as well as Sisters in Crime, expanding the number of authors contacted, and providing additional exposure on LI’s Cablevision. Frank is investigating other local access stations, and expects to air the show in all Long Island Counties, including Brooklyn and Queens by the fall.
