“Author Marketing Live 14 (AMLive14) was a fantastic inaugural event packed with tons of great speakers and awesome ideas for both new and experienced authors as well as those involved in online marketing of any sort. The agenda was full of some of the biggest names in content marketing, several great authors, and many of the best companies in the industry. I am glad I decided to spend a day away from the office and attend AMLive14 – it was SO worth the investment! I cannot wait until next year’s event!”

“This book marketing event, the first live event for Jim Kukral, rocked. Jim brought in very talented authors and book marketing experts from all over the country who presented and took the time needed to answer attendees questions. This was a 1st class event. I was totally impressed, and I learned a lot.”

“Hands down, Author Marketing live! was one of the best events I’ve ever attended. I spent a lot more money to attend an event in NYC and didn’t come away with nearly as many actionable items as I did with Author Marketing live! Money well spent.”

“Jim, it was a great seminar. Just the first half of the day was well worth the price of admission. Can’t wait for next year!”

“I wasn’t sure what to expect with a first time seminar; I definitely was not disappointed! Jim did a first class job running It. One great speaker after another, kept me taking notes virtually the entire day. The seminar was packed with invaluable information from a diverse group of interesting and well-informed speakers. I took a chance and flew in from the west coast for it, and I can easily say that it was worth every penny. I’ve got next year’s seminar already set on my calendar. You should too!”

“I want to take this opportunity to let you know how very much I enjoyed the seminar. It was hugely useful — to the point I’m not sure what to do first. Thank you so much for offering this opportunity at such an affordable price. I sincerely hope to attend again next year. I’m a marketing copywriter of financial services by day (just as boring as it sounds), and I’ve attended a lot of seminars over the years. This highly focused author marketing conference hit home on so many fronts — much better than the high-dollar seminars I’ve attended that were hit-or-miss because of the broad audience scope.”

“I am so grateful for the opportunity to attend Author Marketing Live 2014. The conference far exceeded my expectations, and Jim Kukral really knows how to put on a show. I’m at the beginning of my author journey, and I was unsure about whether the conference would be a good fit for me. It was. The presenters shared strategies that are helpful to me now and plenty more I can apply in the future. And though the quality of the information was amazing, getting to geek out with other authors and share stories, challenges, and successes was my favorite part. You just can’t beat in-person events for getting to know the people behind the blog, Twitter handle, or podcast. I’ll be attending future events for sure. Author Marketing Live was well worth the trip.”
