Overcome your anxiety to celebrate — and market — yourself on social media, at events, and in your books, and build a bio that will serve you in any situation.

My bio: Ariel Hudnall is the Managing Director of Zg Stories, a marketing agency specializing in book publicity, author platform development, and storytelling stratagem. She holds a Master of Publishing from Simon Fraser University, and a BA in Japanese Language & Culture from the University of California, Berkeley. 

She has lived in Louisiana, Mendocino, the Bay Area, Tokyo, Kyoto, and across British Columbia. Within the publishing world, she has worked (or volunteered) as a beta and slush reader, developmental editor, acquisitions editor, book designer, digital advertiser, publicist, marketing consultant and strategist. When she is not working, Ariel pursues creative writing, gardening, and baking, the latter two of which are frequently shared on her Instagram.
