From community building to partnering for events and school visits (both IRL and virtual), to hand selling your books, advocating for authors and more, booksellers and bookstores (particularly independent bookstores) are a key element in an author’s success, even more so as we go about the tricky business of promoting books during an ongoing pandemic. This webinar will discuss the secrets of building real and meaningful partnerships with your local bookstores, and help both debut and seasoned authors navigate that relationship and mine it to its fullest.

Joy Preble is the author of a medium-long list of young adult novels including the Dreaming Anastasia series, the Sweet Dead Life series, Finding Paris, and her newest novel, It Wasn’t Always Like This. She is fond of clever conversation and clever cocktails, teaches writing at Writespace Houston and is also the Children’s Programming Director at Brazos Bookstore.
