DID YOU KNOW??? - PUBLISHING TIPS!!!

WRITER'S CONFERENCES AND LITERARY FESTIVALS ARE ESSENTIAL TO YOUR DEVELOPMENT AS A WRITER!!!

1. Start now - attending local writer's conferences and festivals before you publish.  These forums help you develop as a writer.  They connect you with other writers, published authors and industry professionals.

2. Some registration fees can be high, but you cannot afford "NOT" to make this investment.  Consider it a cost of doing business and development.  Make it a part the budget in your overall business plan. Write it off as a deductible on your tax return.

3.  Once you are published, you should get more involved in conferences and festivals by purchasing table / booth space at those events to help market and sell your book.

4.  Make sure the conferences / festivals where you buy table / booth space, have a proven track record.  You don't want to pay for space at an event, where there are more authors attending the event than readers.

5.  Seek continuous development!  Booth space is not cheap and not the most effective way to market your title or maximize your earning potential.  Develop a literary resume that will attract conference planning committees to invite you as a panelist, workshop facilitator or featured author.
