Book marketing information

Sell your book at book fairs, festivals & trade shows - book-marketing


Play a better game with your book sales by escalating your audiences at local or nonlocal book fairs, festivals or trade shows. Can't find the money for a booth or table, rent a space on a celebrity else's table and volunteer to be back for their book. In fact, rent a back into a corner at a range of assorted tables in the same fair or show and triple your exposure.

The place on the net to go to find out what's forthcoming in your area, or an area you want to journey to, is at the Documents of Congress' website: http://www. loc. gov. loc/cfbook/bookfair. html. When you visit, the listings are in alphabetical order or by state. You will find shows for other countries, counting Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom. Global events, plus Canada, listings available. Journey for a month, write it off for your taxes, and add in a number of altered fairs and shows while you there.

Since I live in Virginia and go habitually to Washington State, I plan my go and schedule about these two areas to start.
