A great day out at the Bayside Author Expo!

Posted on Jun 3, 2016 in Events, News

On Sunday, I was thrilled to be on a panel at the Bayside Author Expo, which took place at the Beaumaris Library. Panel members: On my left, Rochelle Jackson (Journalist and true crime writer) and Jane Sullivan (Author and “The Age” columnist/reviewer.) On my right, Olga Lorenzo (The Light on the Water), and Jenny Ackland (The Secret Son).

The topic for our panel discussion: Promotion is not a dirty word! The art of marketing your book.” Each of us gave our own unique perspective on the world of book publishing, and our experience of the (dreaded?) but necessary art of self-promotion and marketing!

There was a huge turnout to this superbly organised event. Congratulations to Lynda Hayton and the team at Bayside Library Service. I think author Emma Bowd sums it up beautifully in this extract from her blog: https://emmabowd.com/2016/06/01/author-expo/
