This coming Monday I will be speaking on a panel at BEA about author self promotion, and book retailing and social media. BEA has started a new conference called
DIY Authors Conference & Marketplace—I think it is a great idea! Especially in this Internet-age and digital age.
Here is the scoop:

DIY Innovation & Success: Selling and Retailing Your Book
When your book goes to print, the question remains: how are you going to sell it? There are many ways to make a sale--your website, online retailers, bookstores, distributors that sell to bookstores, specialty shops--but you need to know how to navigate these options in order to maximize the results. Today you will hear from independent booksellers and self-published authors who have attacked the market from all sides and have the information you need to get your work in front of a buying public.
See you there! I will be running around the show also Tuesday, May 25 - Thursday, May 27 and I look forward to this year's show :)
