How to Market and Promote your Travel Memoir. A series of 1:1 author interviews hosted by Jay Artale, featuring a trio of successful travel writing authors who have self-published. This Fringe session is a series of three 20 minute interviews covering the following topics:

  • Hybrid Author Jack Scott: How to use your blog content to write and promote your book
  • Indie Author Karen McCann: The importance of defining your audience and how you use your blog to attract your target demographic.
  • Indie Author Joe Cawley: The benefit of Collaboration: Cross-promoting with other authors.

Jack, Karen and Joe bring a different perspective on how they use their blog and collaborate with other authors to raise awareness of their books and reach their target audience. I interviewed each author individually and due to time constraints I’ve edited each session down to 20 minutes each.

These three sessions are ideally targeted at beginning memoir authors who are looking for tips and advice from other successful authors in this popular niche. Their advice will not only help authors reach readers and sell more books – there’s a heavy dose of inspiration in there too! ~ Jay Artale
