3 simple ways to grow a sustainable author platform

Katie Sadler at her desk

Whether you are published by a huge brand name publisher, a small indie team, or by a solo team of one (you!), you need to take charge of your author platform and marketing.

This workshop is for authors who want to grow their audience sustainably, feel good about their marketing, and sell more books.

23rd September, 11am

In this hour long free masterclass, you will learn...

  • Why having a huge following online isn’t as important as you think.
  • What publishers are really looking for when it comes to your author platform (this applies if you’re already published, too!).
  • 3 simple and actionable things you can do this week that will really make a difference.
  • The one bad habit I see authors doing time and again that you can stop doing immediately.

Hosted by me! I'm Katie Sadler

Katie Sadler with books on her head

Hi, I’m Katie Sadler, a marketing mentor for authors.

I’m also an introvert and mum of two, was born in Trinidad, and now live in SW London.

As an avid reader, who was always after ‘one more page’ as a child, I feel like I have the best job in the world: helping people discover new books.

I have over 14 years working as a marketer within the publishing industry, and in 2018, I began working directly with authors as well. 

I’ve worked on huge household names like The Great British Bake Off, George RR Martin, and Cecelia Ahern, to debut and independent authors.

I am passionate about helping authors find ways to market themselves in a way the delivers results and feels good.

What do I need to bring along to the masterclass?


Nothing! Just bring along a notebook and pen, as there will be plenty to take notes on.


I can’t make that time – will there be a replay?


Yes – you will have access to the replay for free until midnight on the 26th of September. I’ve given you a super short window for two reasons: 1) I want you to watch it! I know how tempting it is to sign up for something and then never do it. 2) I am thinking of putting the workshop up for sale after the live round.


Are you doing this to sell me something else?


You caught me. Yes, I will be promoting something else at the end of the masterclass, but I am too much of a people pleaser not to make this hour really worth your time, even if you don’t take me up on my (truly excellent) offer.


Is there going to be time for a Q&A?


Yes! If you’ve got any burning questions about your author platform, you can ask them live during the session, or email them to me beforehand, if you’re unable to make it live.
