Why Come to these Events?
by K. D. Mason
Hello fellow Author,
As I know you know, writing is a passionate pursuit. It doesn’t matter if you are writing fact or fiction or poetry, a memoir, a mystery or a romance, no matter who your audience is, from the very young to the very old, we all share that one special moment when you hold in your hand, for the very first time — your book.
Once it has become a reality, the challenge changes to how to share your passion with the world. This is difficult, more difficult than even writing and publishing your work. Unless you are really lucky and the right person, at the right time, reads your book and it ignites something in them that drives them to become your advocate, it is your job to take on that challenge.
We are not all natural salesmen. We need help. We need the opportunities to make ourselves known to a wider audience. I am writing to you about one of those opportunities. As you may or may not know, Chris Obert of Pear Tree Publishing is a person who is passionate about helping us find those opportunities. In July he hosts the New England Authors Expo, and the event has grown each year, to become one of the largest New England forums for new authors to get exposure, to network and to sell our works. Each year as it has grown and changed, it has remained true to his idea of an affordable opportunity for us. In addition to the large Expo in the summer there are smaller events that take place throughout the year.
Thank you and I hope to see you at the next event.
