I’m very excited to feature a repeat guest in this episode, Clare Marshall. Clare is a true expert in everything publishing and I’m really excited to have her back on. In our first interview, which you can listen to in episode 26, Clare and I talked about a lot of topics related to publishing, including how to get started and tips for designing your book. We also talked briefly about using in-person events to promote and sell your book, and I’m so excited that Clare has agreed to come back on the podcast to take a deep dive into events.
Clare is a true master when it comes to live events (among many things, of course). She regularly travels to conventions to promote and sell her young adult fantasy novels, and she writes amazing recaps of each convention that are incredibly informative for anyone looking to sell their books in person. I’m really excited to get the chance to pick her brain about how YOU can successfully use live events to sell more books, too.
RESOURCES MENTIONED IN THE EPISODE
Clare C. Marshall grew up in rural Nova Scotia with very little television and dial-up internet, and yet she turned out okay. Her hit fantasy novel The Violet Fox earned an honorable mention in the 2016 Whistler Independent Book Awards. She is a full-time freelance editor, book designer, and web manager. If there’s time left in the day, she devotes it to Faery Ink Press, her publishing imprint, and her creative business podcast, Business BFFs. When she’s not writing or fiddling up a storm, she enjoys computer games and making silly noises at cats.
