Congratulations! You’re about to become a published author. Amongst all the thoughts swirling in your head is now you have to plan a release party.
The biggest decision you need to make when planning the release party for your novel is exactly where to host the party. Of course, your first thought would be a book store, but is that the best choice? Certainly, it’s not the only option, but exactly what are the benefits of hosting your party at a book store over all the other places?
Since it is a book store, chances are good that people will come into the store during the time frame of your release party. What better way to catch the attention of possible new readers than to be hosting a release party when they come in to their favorite book store? Not only, will you benefit from the store customers, but the store will benefit as well, and with the dying breed of book stores in this country, helping them is an added bonus.
Because the book store is one of the hosts of your book release party, they will do some advertising and promotion themselves, whether it’s on their website, Facebook page, Twitter page, or even a flyer posted in their store. Of course, you should also do what you can to spread the word and promote your book party yourself, but having just a little more promotion is a big help and plus of hosting at a book store.
What is a better back drop for your book release party than walls and walls of books? Hosting your party at a book store requires little, to no, decoration other than the basics of table clothes, posters, and of course your books-saving you big money and the headache of more planning.
