The Realms Faire is Coming!

I am over at The Insecure Writer’s Support Group website, talking about marketing in relation to target audience, benefits, and needs:
• Who is my target audience?
• What are my book’s benefits?
• Does my book fill a need?
Stop by for the rest!

November 10-14, 2014

Calling All Authors and Writers

M. Pax could use your help in getting the word out about this year’s Realms Faire. The faire is about you and helping you gain some visibility for your work. It has several opportunities to help you do that.

1 - Be a sponsor and donate prizes. This gets you listed on the Realms Faire scrolly and pages. The events giving away your swag will mention you.

2 - Test your mettle in the joust. People will be cheering for you for five days straight. You will get a spotlight on one of the five days. You get a nifty badge. Limited to 10 knights.

3 - Duel with words in Dueling Bards. You and your work are spotlighted on one day. Limited to 10 bards.


We really need more Knights and Bards! Click on the links above if interested.

2014 Events:

The Joust, hosted by M. Pax

Soak-a-bloke and Drench-a-wench, hosted by Christine Rains

Unfortunately, I'm sitting out of all events this year. Maybe next year.

I may sign up as a bard.

Carol Kilgore said...

I'm barely keeping my head above water right now, so I think I'm going to have to pass on both of these. But such a great thing for the Survive and Thrive. And Mary's is always fun.

Hi L.Diane. I haven't read all the other comments, so in case no one else told you, Joy Campbell changed her bloghop to November 3rd because of the clash.

Elsie Amata said...

I wish I could join in on all the fun you guys are going to have this month. I have a class I'm attending and the homework is brutal! Whew, it's going to be along two months. Best of luck!!

My alter ego Roe was in the bards last year. I'm trying to be a knight myself this year around. I love Realms Faire. Good luck to those doing that thrive hop.
