April Webinar Presenter: Marsh Myers, Author

April Topic: The Pleasures and Perils of Being an Author (Illustrator) on Social Media

For authors (or illustrators) just starting out, social media can be an invaluable and highly intimidating tool for reaching new readers. Marsh Myers, a young adult indie author based in Corvallis, provides tips on how and where to get started, the pitfalls you should avoid from day one, tools that can make social media more manageable, and when enough is enough.

Bio:

By day, Marsh is the Manager of Education Innovation with the prestigious Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport. His chief responsibility for the Aquarium is to administer a one-of-a-kind distance learning program for teens and young adults called Oceanscape Network (aquarium.org). Marsh is responsible for all social media related to the Network, including the production of original content like videos and live-streaming events.
By night (and weekends and any other time he can find a few spare moments), Marsh is a young adult author. His books include HIS LIFE ABIDING (2013), THE MEN IN THE TREES (2014) and MY SUMMER (WITH ROBOTS) (2018). In August 2016, he also launched DARK AND FEVERED DREAMS, a serialized storytelling experience which combines graphic novels and online materials to immerse young readers into the mysterious, supernatural community of Hidden Rock. 
Marsh currently resides in Corvallis and enjoys hiking, traveling and rummaging the crowded aisles of second-hand bookstores and comic book shops. Learn more on his website at marshmyers.com
