Last Thursday, I gave a presentation to the Women’s Discussion Group at my subdivision on my five books, mainly promoting Love For Sale and Gambler’s Choice, coming soon from TWRP. I prepared a PowerPoint presentation including a slide with the cover introducing the book and giving its genre and heat rating. The next slide contained the book video.
The ladies loved the book videos and watched intently! I
created the video for Love For Sale, and an author friend did the one
for Gambler’s Choice.
Now, standing in front of a group with a
microphone in hand, is not my favorite activity, but it was fun, and I
sold some books. Most of the ladies are over 55, and I was surprised
the books that sold best were the ones I had advised were “racy”.
I think the experience was worthwhile, both in name recognition and promotion, and would like to find other venues.
What has been your experience with such presentations?
