There are times we must actually step out expand and network with others. In this blog, there are 4 quick tips that you can implement immediately. Here are 4 tips that can help you expand your network:
- Join Local Author Groups – There are numerous reading and writing groups. By visiting and/or joining a group, it allows you an opportunity to expand your circle and connect with other authors/writers closer to your home.
- Book Tour – We all have friends and family that live out of state. They should all know that you are an author and that you have a book. A book tour is a great way to visit them. Ask your family & friends for assistance, let me know you will be coming to their city/state for a book tour and would love their help.
- Author Showcase at your local library – Libraries love to showcase local authors. They usually host an author showcase a couple times a year. Connect with your library and let me know you are an author and you would love to be a part of their showcase, and you would love to have a book signing there.
