Author Visit Advice?
I have no business blog posting, since I am in the final stretch of a MONSTER deadline-fueled drafting process… but I need to post a question.
I am about to put together my “author visit” page, and I wondered, for those of you dear readers who are teachers and/or librarians, what exactly makes for the most successful author visit?
I taught for years, and spent a decade doing weekly public speaking in my work at both churches and schools. I LOVE interacting with groups of kids, and the chance to do this again is a part of the publication/marketing/writing process that is a super huge bonus cherry-on-top for me.But author visits are new territory.
I would welcome any and all advice, tips, hints, or horror stories you might want to share!
Oh, and if you’re a teacher or librarian (or know one) I’ll send you bookmarks AND stickers for your kids — if you send me a tip AND use the blog contact form to send me an address to mail them! So, how’s THAT for incentive?
