Book Fairs

A great way to earn publicity is to try and get your book in a book fair. As a kid, I grabbed every single book and looked at it. If you have written an interesting enough synopsis, chances are someone will buy your book at a book fair. Book fairs might be hard to get your book in though. The Scholastic book fairs only let books ordered from Scholastic to be in the book fair. No outside sellers allowed. So what do you do? Well, you find a different book fair. Even if you go through 40 book fairs and only get yours in 1, you are still getting a lot of publicity for something as simple as ordering some books.

The book fair is one of the most fun school events of the year for me. I love to talk with friends and chat while looking at books. Books are a part of my everyday life and a book fair gives me tons of choices on new books to read and new authors to investigate. If you can get your book in a book fair, then you will be sure to reel in some publicity and sales, so look for upcoming book fairs and events near you.

  1. I've never really thought about book fairs, actually, I've never really thought of what comes next after you finish writing. I think the thought of writing is a little looming for me to do so. I'll keep in mind the book fairs.

  4. I get them published through the company CreateSpace, a self-publishing company. I also have my book digitally distributed through Kindle Direct Publishing, Smashwords, and Nook PubIt. I hope that answers your question :)
