For book/ebook authors, publishers, & self-publishers
How many authors who are speakers have the problem of locations wanting you to fill their events, yet, they claim to have no money for your service? I done some for free. About my topic is substance abuse, losing my husband and daughter from the disease, I talk at halfway homes, rehabilitation centers, court-ordered programs, and have been invited twice to talk to men and women inmates in jail. I also speak at churches, libraries and schools.
No one offers to pay. It's getting depressing so that I have refused some.
That's the key. I have done small event with attendees at churches, and it's amazing how they buy your books. I believe, if you know what you are talking about with your talk, your books sell.
