Breaking News: Media Attention for Your Book

 

 

Speaker: 

Tiffany Griffith

 

Tiffany Griffith is an award-winning journalist by day, and a hopeless romantic by night. Born in Clearwater, Florida and raised in the Tampa Bay area, Tiffany comes from a long line of Barbadians who taught her to appreciate good food, a great party and even better stories. A graduate of the University of Florida (GO GATORS!), Tiffany has worked as an anchor, reporter, and producer in both radio and television, and currently breaks news from the assignment desk at Fox 5 Atlanta. Tiffany is a sucker for a good rom-com and has completed her first novel, A Drink Between Friends -- a tale of a dysfunctional Irish Pub on the Florida Coast. She appreciates her GRW family for the frequent accountability checks to FINISH THE BOOK! Tiffany's friends call her, “Tiff Griff.” You can, too.

Lucky for you, Tiffany Griffith is sharing her decades of experience in the news business, so you can get the headlines you want for your novels. You’ll Learn:

  • Who you need to contact in local and national newsrooms

  • How to write a stellar press release that leaves the news hounds salivating.

  • The 15 things you MUST have in your press kit.

  • What to do once you land that big interview.

  • And why you should never give up, even when they pass on your story.
