ALL AUTHORS MUST PROMOTE ALL AUTHORS: Pre-Event Marketing
Guidelines, pre-event signings, social media images, and other assistance will be provided. We would like to reiterate that ALL AUTHORS MUST PROMOTE ALL AUTHORS in order to be included in IOWA: this is a community event. We highly recommend that you take this time to connect with your fellow writers!
Blog Swaps and Newsletter Swaps are a potential source of marketing for yourself as well as the rest of your community. We also highly suggest that you post on the IOWA Facebook group and connect for author interviews, book reviews, and any other method of cross-promotion you can think of. We will provide a paragraph of information on IOWA to be placed in any articles or newsletters you may produce.
PLEASE KEEP US APPRISED OF YOUR ENDEAVOURS.
We WILL be monitoring the attending authors and their efforts to promote the event. If we feel you have not made a good faith effort to promote our event, it is possible that you will not be invited to attend in subsequent years. If you cannot commit to helping us spread the word about our event, either online or in your community, we ask that you consider not joining the interest list.
