Happy Fall! This edition of Weekend Reading highlights upcoming events for authors who want to meet readers in person. Marketing your book online is inexpensive, but there is nothing quite like meeting a reader face-to-face. Authors should definitely plan to attend at least one offline event during the calendar year.
Thanks for the feedback last week. I plan to announce in the next couple of newsletters about the upcoming WordPress course and the pre-made book covers.
If you missed an edition of Weekend Reading, you can view the archives at any time.
