Editor appearing at Hudson book event Saturday
How to pen engaging dialogue for your story

Speak about book’s topic to various groups

When Microphonepromoting your book, you don’t have to limit public appearances to book signings or radio/television interviews. You might consider creating a presentation related to your latest book’s topic and then finding places to present it. Of course, your book(s) will be on a hand for sale, and you’ll be introduced as the author and such-and-such title. In short, you’re using your status as an author to speak to a group rather than pitching yourself as someone with a book to sell.

Some possible organizations or groups where you might make a presentation include:
Book clubs
Civic groups (such as Chamber of Commerce, Lion’s Club, Toastmasters, etc.)
College classes (Unless you wrote a book for children or teens, shy away from classes with minors, as they don’t buy books.)
Organizations related to your book topic (e.g. if your book is about hiking, speak to the local hiking club?)
Women’s organizations
Writer’s groups

Don’t forget to promote your appearance in the local media and on your social media platforms. Hopefully, local media will cover the event, giving you another outlet for selling your book!

Need an editor? Having your book, business document or academic paper proofread or edited before submitting it can prove invaluable. In an economic climate where you face heavy competition, your writing needs a second eye to give you the edge. Whether you come from a big city like New Haven, Connecticut, or a small town like Bullfrog, Utah, I can provide that second eye.
