THE PROMOTIONAL EVENT FOR THE WRITING INDUSTRY IS BACK!


PROMO DAY makes its return in 2010 and promises to be the best yet. Mark your calendars for Saturday 15th May 2010!

An all day, online, international event for people in the writing industry packed full of tips and advice along with a variety of opportunities for writers, publishers, editors, etc. to promote their work and services. Readers are also welcome to drop in and get to know the authors better in the forums, view the video trailers or read the sample chapters on site.

Founder and Organiser of the event, Jo Linsdell, had this to say “PROMO DAY came about because I was looking for opportunities to promote my books using the internet at little or no cost. After attending the Muse Online Writers Conference back in 2006, I searched the Internet for similar events aimed at what to do after you’ve written the book and found none. I decided to fill the void and so PROMO DAY was born. PROMO DAY is a great opportunity to network with other members of the industry, take part in online workshops and promote and best of all it’s FREE."

This year a new forums feature has been added to the site to make interaction even more International. There will be special sections for publishers to post their submission guidelines and give information to authors about their companies. Companies offering services (virtual assistants, website designers, illustrators, ghost writers, etc.) will also have a section where they can let attendees know more about what they offer.

Visit the website http://jolinsdell.tripod.com/promoday for more details of how you can be involved.

BE PART OF THE ACTION, BE PART OF PROMO DAY!

Thanks for sharing this Carol.

This years event is set to be bigger than ever. I've got some fantastic workshops lined up (all free to attend, no registration necessary) and I'm sure the new forums feature is going to be a huge success.

I look forward to seeing you all there and getting to know you better.
