Did you know that today’s Promo Day? What’s that, you say? It’s a free online event for publishers, editors, readers, writers, anyone interested in books, to learn about promoting one’s work and services, while networking with your peers.
This event is the brainchild of founder and organizer Jo Linsdell, a freelance writer living in Italy. She said, “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”.
Go to the WORKSHOP Chatroom for free workshops covering a variety of topics, such as creating query letters, networking, finding agents, and more. The RADIO & PODCASTS page has links to online podcasts and radio shows of interests to writers.
See what books and other materials are available from event sponsors, workshop hosts and moderators on the BOOKSTORE page. Pop into the PROMO Chatroom and see what’s going on with your peers. Post your book trailer on the PROMOTIONAL VIDEOS page or get ideas to create one yourself.
Much to do and see while at the PROMO DAY site. The event does take place in Central European Time (CET), but there’s a handy time converter at the site so you can figure out your time zone.
Remember, it’s FREE and all you have to do is make your way over to the site right here: http://jolinsdell.tripod.com/promoday
Give it a go, why don’t you? After all, we all could use a bit of help showing the world what we’ve got to offer!
