For the A to Z Challenge, I’m posting promo and other tips for writers, along with a daily photo. (All photos taken by me.)
At the very least, every author should be able to discuss his own book. This will be required for signings, book readings, and library appearances. Book clubs and writer’s groups are also open to the author.
However, magic happens when an author moves beyond the book and develops a platform around his or her area of expertise, research, or experience. There are several advantages, including speaking fees, back of room sales, and more appeal to the media.
The list of venues for speakers is endless: libraries; businesses; schools; churches; colleges; writer and book festivals; organizations; clubs; conferences; etc. All of these provide an opportunity to reach a wider audience and generate greater books sales.
Have you ventured into professional speaking?
