Summertime is a slower season.
Readers have more time in
summer for reading your
books, reading about your
books, catching media
coverage of your books, and
surfing the Web.
Our panelists
will offer promotion ideas
for this time
of year, including two
reports from
Book Expo America
(BEA), the annual book
publishing trade show
that always
takes place in
late May or early June.

Moderator: Robin Quinn,
Book Editor, Book Coach, www.WritingandEditing.Biz
