The Daily Herald: Trinidadian Children's book author Joanne Gail Johnson visits St. Maarten schools

Have you got an opportunity to travel for work or play?

Then do some home work before you fly!

A few emails and phone calls can connect you with libraries, new media and local book shops. One contact will help you network with another and so on. It is well worth your while to take your book(s) with you and offer to  meet and greet / sign and/ or sell books/ host readings. This effort can go a long way in creating other opportuniites and boosting your book sales by enlivening your presence and connecting with (potential) fans.

If you haven't already joined the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators - DO! The networking opportunities, with over 20,000 members world wide are invaluable.
