BLOGGING AND NETWORKING FOR BOOK PROMOTIONS
HERE'S WHAT HAPPENED ON A BOOK NETWORKING SATURDAY, 30 APRIL 2019


The Saturday filled with authors, editors, publishers for a masterclass on Blogging and Book Reviewing with expert Arunava Sinha from Scroll. Tips on how to promote, read a book for reviewing and the loopholes were marked out for book promotions. Discussion on knowing where to reach and the influencers who will help through the journey in book promotions was discussed. A strong statement being said "Build your pipeline and work on it".

A great talk on book reviewers and bloggers about the nuances of book promotion. The Influencers session talked about establishing the right medium of promoting books or yourself and the elements on Building Communities of Influencers. Besides book reviewing, bookselling needs debate, several cups of coffee, paper scrunching and a bunch of writers & publishers in making brainwaves to focus.

Selling books comes from a space of personal connect. Advertising doesn’t do that trick, our relationship with advertising has been of mistrust and skipping the message says Arunava, Scroll.
