Book Publishing Tips of the Day

Daily words of wisdom from Tami DePalma and other publishing industry experts. Throughout the month of May we'll feature tips on taking full advantage of the BookExpo America trade show. Today's Tip from DePalma: "Get Visual!"


Get Visual! On your media kit folder, place a catchy label or even your book cover to the front for a quick visual boost, and to increase your repetition factor.

When printing the cover of your book, consider your media kit materials, too. Print book marks, post cards, business cards - all at the cost of design and cut lines. Don't forget contact information on each and every piece!
