Black Writers on Tour 2014!

Come hear the impressive guest speakers at this year's Black Writers On Tour conference.

And there are a few spaces left! 

CALLING ALL AUTHORS - This is a great opportunity for authors wishing to gain exposure, attract new readers, meet book clubs, or sell books. All writers' seminars are free for exhibitor - a $100 value.

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.

The Black Writers On Tour conference 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.
