Mark the date: Saturday April 19, 2014. Do not let the talk about the down economy discourage you from making your book business a success — people are still looking for a great book to read. Black Writers On Tour is designed to connect you with readers as well as to arm you with current information regarding the publishing industry and the new trends. There are many authors who are doing well and they are the ones who keep abreast of what's happening in the industry and they make themselves visible. If the public does not know that you have a book, they can't purchase it. You should consider making your book available in every format possible such as: CD, E-book, Print-On-Demand and in other languages.
Register early and Save $$$ on your exhibit booth and get you picture placed on the BWOT marketing flyer which is distributed to 50,000 people such as: libraries, colleges, universities, high schools, businesses and at the events during Black History month in February and Women's month in March and all events.
If you are a vendor, all seminars are free for you. The general admission is free and you can bring as many people as you like to help. We distribute 50,000 colored flyers with author's pictures and the name of their book on the back side of the flyer. If you would like to have your picture on the flyer, it's first come first served. The flyers will be ready for the streets in February.
