Vendor/Reader Meet & Greet Opportunities

To reach your audience/readers, you MUST go where they are. This means that you must brainstorm places and events where your content will be appreciated... or you must figure out a way to convince nonreaders that your content is what they need in their lives. I know a lot of people who claimed that reading was not their "thing", until they picked up the "right" book. YOUR book may just be that "right" book for someone out there right now. Remember, potential readers are EVERYWHERE, but you must ALWAYS... Think Outside the Box! 

 

*The list below provides links to vendor opportunities in a few areas around the U.S. We like to list events as far as 30 or more days out, so that you will have the opportunity to register and meet event vendor deadlines. In some cases, we will list opportunities in the same month IF we think the registration window is still open. We cannot guarantee that the event is not fully booked or if the event hosts are still accepting vendor applications. You must reach out to event hosts for more information. We compile this limited list from sites such as: Eventbrite, Meetup, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and TikTok, etc. We also accept requests to post vendor calls from authors and event hosts nationwide. Again... this is NOT a complete list; we only post a few events each month to help you get started on your promotional journey.

*Penhandler's Ink Self-Publishing Consulting Firm is ONLY sharing this information, we are not affiliated with any of these events, and we have no control over their vendor prices or policies. This list is updated as events are sent to us. Please check back often.
