Still Time for Writers to Join Stellar Leadership

Just another recommendation from me to you, my treasured #SharingwithWriters visitors and subscribers. This memo from a writers conference director is an example of why I recommend this conference book fair—even for book display when you can’t be there—the only one I recommend in my The Frugal Book Promoter because without personal attention from authors they rarely work! This one, however, is frugal and coupled with benefits and solid publishing industry knowhow. Read through.  Especially the director’s benefits list! You’ll be glad you did!
