What we're about

The San Antonio Writers’ Guild is a community of writers spanning all genres and levels of experience. Our purpose is to share information and help each other grow in our craft through contests, critique sessions and other special events.

Becoming a paid SAWG member allows for reduced rates for entries to the annual contest, access to read and have work critiqued during our weekly sessions, and member rates on special events:

Publishing, Promotion ... and More/Better Promotion

Self-publishing is more than listing a book on Amazon and crossing your fingers. Your book, like any product, must connect to a market through active promotion.

Publishers might or might not promote your book, but you can for sure, cheaply, easily, and faster than publishers can. You have more control, and if you do it right, you’ll make money.

Ron Toms has 20 years’ experience in product promotion: toys, games, educational items, and yes, books. He pays his bills entirely with his own book sales, in genres from sci-fi to short stories, nonfiction, how-tos, children’s books and more.

Ron will teach us how promotion works, how to take off our writers’ hats and think like publishers: e-books, hardbacks, paperbacks, audiobooks, getting listed on Amazon and/or Barnes and Noble, world-wide distribution (why/why not), costs, technical issues, guerrilla marketing, and more.
