I always loved doing trade shows just because of all the people I get to meet. But once I started speaking at trade shows, it was a whole new game. When you are the one in the lime light, you are the one who gets all of the attention. And the attention comes in the framework of new clients.
So a part of this author program is to encourage my authors to become speakers at trade show events, have a display table and use the other vendors as a resource to sell their books in bulk. It is one of the greatest resources there is for an author generating mass amounts of income.
