One way to spread the word about a book or author is through book festivals or fairs. I was looking up festivals the other day and found one in Tucson, Arizona where a friend recently moved. So guess what I’m thinking about for next year?
This week, our writing prompt is about book fairs and festivals. I’ve only been to a Scholastic Book Fair a time or two, but I’m interested in all things books! If I get everything lined up, I could be meeting readers in Arizona next March. I’ll keep you posted. Hopefully I won’t be spending my profit on new books that I see while there! Do you live near a university or book store that offers a book fair?
Have you been to a book festival? Where was it? Did you buy several books or find a true treasure? Did you get to meet a favorite author? What kinds of fairs do you like to attend? Share with us! I’d love to hear all about it!
So, you are going to Tuscon then on to Vegas in March, yes??
I really don’t know too much about book fairs, but I am very interested. Perhaps I’ll meet up in Tuscon. Now there’s an idea.
Go to the site and sign up! They are closing when they are full, or by Nov. 5th I think. That would be great!
