ReadersMagnet at Frankfurt
ReadersMagnet, a rapidly growing self-publishing and book marketing company in San Diego, has been on the rise in recent years. Their presence at the Frankfurt Book Fair, popularly known as Frankfurter Buchmesse, was marked by a remarkable display of a wide array of books, from fiction to non-fiction, spanning different genres, and catering to various reader preferences. Our booth Stand 6.0/A32 at the fair became a hub of various activities, drawing authors and readers alike. They were recorded through our photos and livestreams on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter.
Author Book Signings
ReadersMagnet offers a unique platform for emerging and established authors to showcase their works. With a dedicated space at the Frankfurt Book Fair, three authors had the opportunity to engage with a global audience, discuss their books, and forge meaningful connections with readers. The writers include Barbara Jane Hannon, author of Letters from World War II; Raul Cuero, Ph.D., author of The COVID Ghost Game; and, Robert Maxie Sr., author of Fool Proof. Jax the Poet and Tish Barnhardt visited our booth as well.
Our staff at the book fair took live videos on social media while authors were signing books or interacting with fairgoers. This personalized touch added a dynamic element to the fair, highlighting RM’s commitment to supporting and promoting talented authors.
