Online Book Promotion - Reaching readers

Assuming you've something to sell, here's an interesting event, although very expensive. I suppose you only need to sell a few hundred extra books to make it worth while. I wonder who this will appeal to though:

June 7th
Font Literary Agency & Writing Centre is bringing the exciting world of online book promotion to writers. A day of lectures, workshops, demonstrations and case histories in Dublin city centre.

This day is for everybody who writes or wants to write – from beginners, just thinking about getting started, to the established author who wants to reach new readers – and all without leaving the comfort of home.

The day will show writers how to ignite the power of the internet and bring their writing to thousands of new readers by setting up a web space that suits them and gaining the tools and contacts to build a committed readership.

Also covered: the new phenomenon of the Virtual Book Tour – now revolutionising the way writers and publishers market books.

Facilitators on the day, entitled “Reaching Readers Online” include: Orna Ross, novelist and Founder of Font Literary Agency & Writing; Conor Pope, Irish Times columnist and Internet expert; Krishna De, Internet Marketing guru; and Pamela Moran, Editorial Assistant at Font Literary Agency & Writing Centre and organizer of Virtual Book Tours.
