My Favorite 5$ Book Promotion


I generally don't pass along information about specific book fairs to my blog subscribers because they are so regional and because I don't recommend that authors participate if they can't be there in person.  This one is an exception because it is so inexpensive and because the fair producers (see below) pay attention to authors (and their books!) who choose to support but can't be on site.

The Authors' Book Fair is held in conjunction with the ArtsWorks Festival and features a display for authors unable to attend for the frugal price of $5. I have participated for years. They always send me a shot of the display they set up (see the photo at left) and I have found many wonderful networking partners in the process. The fair is November 18 and 19, 2017, from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, at the Eau Gallie Civic Center, 1551 Highland Ave, Melbourne, FL 32935. FREE and open to the public. Thousands let their muse run wild and attend this annual even in warm and sunny Florida! And if you can be there, you are welcome in person, of course! Learn more at http://AuthorsForAuthors.com. Or contact Valerie Allen for more information or help with registration: Vallenwriter@gmail.com.
