Do you need an ad in this year’s Realm Makers conference booklet?

If you’re a published author or offer any kind of services beneficial to a writer, the answer is YES!

In case you hadn’t heard, we’ve brought back the conference booklet this year. Why? Because you talked, and we listened. Many people liked having everything in hand physically and all of it in one place. So in this year’s booklet, we’ll have

  • Schedule
  • Map
  • Workshop Descriptions
  • Bios on Agents/Editors
  • and ADS!

Why do I need an ad?

Remember how you had to set on that suitcase just to get it to shut? Remember how you flew to the conference? Remember all those beautiful books in the bookstore that you drooled over? Remember how you remembered you might barely have enough room in your backpack/purse to squeeze in ONLY ONE book? Yep. We’ve all been there.

How many times have you forgotten an author’s name or the title of their book? The beauty of the ad in the conference booklet is the opportunity for people at the conference to see your books and take the titles and covers home with them! When they get home, they can then jump on Amazon and order said books because they remember the title/author/cover!

And what’s more, that means they have something to share with their friends/family when they get home! “Check out this ad. I got to meet this author. I read the first 5 pages in the bookstore, you should check it out!” It could really happen.

Uh–well, if you’re a publisher, editor, agent, cover designer, photographer, etc., writers need what you’re offering! The conference booklet will be going to 150+ people, and they’ll be flipping through it every day for at least 3 days. If they’re anything like me, after they get home and decompress, they’ll flip through it again!

You WANT to be visible. You WANT them to see your ads. The more they see you, the more you and your services will stick in their heads. So when it comes time for them to need a cover for the self-pubbed book, or when they are ready to submit to agents/publishers, you’ll stick out!

Another option that is good for writer services is SPONSORSHIP! We’re always looking for sponsors to help with some of our costs that need to be paid ahead of time. Depending on your level of sponsorship, there are some pretty high-visibility benefits. It’s not too late to jump in on this opportunity!

What do I do if I’d like an ad in the conference booklet?
