Reading Festival in downtown Bradenton a success
The reading festival organized by FWA (Florida Writers Association) was a success for our table. Authors Bria Burton and J Gerard Michaels both sold multiple copies of their books. Bria sold her new Lance and Ringo Tails book and Michaels sold sets of his Cord Wheaton Saga, book 1: Zombie Origins and book 2: Zombie Menace. Both authors read from their books during the festival, which ran Jan 10 – 11.
It’s more than just about sales, though, and we are also excited about the many connections we made with other publishers, marketers, and authors. We hope to hear from them and reach out to them in the near future.
Some of them include Cheyenne from On Line Binding, Michael Butler from Next Century Publishing, and Matt Peters from Beating Windward Press. As we are committed to providing you with the service you need, it’s important to know who we can send you to for those services we don’t provide.
FOLLOW THE AUTHORS
If you want to follow our authors on Twitter:
Bria is the more active Twitter user, while John, writing as J Gerard Michaels, is just getting his Twitter fingers wet.
You can also follow them on their author websites / blogs:
Bria’s: (her blog about her pets, and her author website)
J Gerard Michaels: (where he writes exclusively about zombies)
Both are actively working on their next offerings. We hope you find their work enjoyable and engaging. Stay tuned as we add more authors to our family.
We thank FWA for putting on the reading festival and extending the reach of our authors. This first ever FWA reading festival, open to the public, gave them the opportunity to read (and sing) in public, to sign some books and meet new people. And that is what a festival is all about.
