The mission of "Promote This! With Jennifer Perry" is to show authors different ways to promote their books, and introduce authors who can share useful tips, and while they’re here we get to talk about their books, characters and what’s new.
The writing life can be a solitary one. Attending conferences can keep you up to date on trends, developments and key players in writing, publishing and media in general. It is a wonderful means to reconnect with a lot of acquaintances in one busy day or weekend.
Even better when one is asked to appear as a featured speaker, panelist or guest, and if you’re really known and well respected in your genre your presence may be requested at conferences of a different nature.
Diane Fanning's millions of fans know that she’s one of America’s premier Crime novelists and True Crime authors. Though she gets out to courtrooms, bookstores, and writer’s events, that’s not all. Last October Fanning made a special appearance as part of the Crime Lab Detective Exhibit at Donald W. Reynolds Library located at 300 Library Hill, Mountain Home, Arkansas. She has served on the executive committees of the Writers’ League of Texas and the Heart of Texas chapter of Sisters in Crime and is also a member of Mystery Writers of America.
Join us as we talk with Fanning about personal appearances, conferences and commitees and how they build an author's platform. As for me, I've read almost all of her 21 books and interviewed her for my blog and am thrilled to have Diane Fanning on the show!
