Everyone Likes Free Short Story

Continuing with marketing tips here on Eventispress, three of our authors are giving away short stories and encouraging readers to sign up for their newsletters:

Ian K Pulham’s Radical Action, is a standalone prequel to Ian’s debut novel Ticket to Eden:

Roderick Hart’s Back to the Wall, which includes some of the characters in his recent novel Interleaved Lives:

Author Diana Jackson’s short story is unrelated to her novels but has a quirky title, A Very Yellow Memory and like much of Diana’s work is fiction but has fragments of truth much in the flavour of The Healing Paths of Fife:

Ticket to Eden Now Available Through Bookshops

Ian K Pulham’s novel Ticket to Eden’ is now available in paperback on the Waterstones website and can be ordered through any good bookshop. If you do, then please mention us here at Eventispress.

Here’s the link: WATERSTONES

ISBN: 978-1-8381526-4-2

We realise that every bookshop cannot hold every book in stock and therefore would like to thank Waterstones for their support over the years:

  • Stocking a variety of our books at key location stores
  • Hosting author book-signings
  • and making all of our books available for order.

Note from author Diana Jackson re the last post:

Many thanks for the warm and positive response to her author talk to Kirkcaldy Probus last week. Much appreciated!

Author Diana Jackson continues to explores Post Covid Marketing Strategies ~ Getting back to author talks

Diana writes:

“Like author Brian Kerr, I am beginning to give author talks once more. In fact, with Zoom, I did not totally pause these activities, giving two talks during the pandemic.

I have two bookings for this year, one later this month and another in November. Nothing like the five I did in 2019 before the first lock down, but it is early days. We are also only just coming out of mask wearing towards the end of April up here in Scotland, and so we don’t have quite the same sense of normality that those down south are enjoying.

I have two themes at the moment:

  • Coincidences in the life of an author
  • Early female aviators and other interesting flying facts

These talks have so many benefits:

  1. Getting to know new readers and a wider audience
  2. Exploring themes related to my writing
  3. Sharing interesting ideas gleaned whilst researching, many of which do not get into my novels.
  4. Hopefully selling some books too (I usually give a special offer and round the price to the nearest pound for ease of change giving. At first I took a bag of pound coins and pennies for £8.99, but decided very soon that it was a bit silly!)”
  5. It is most enjoyable, especially the conversation afterwards.
