Have you attended book fairs yet? You might be asking why you should attend in the first place. Depending on what you want to achieve as an indie author, joining book events offers several benefits, such as exposure to a bigger audience and building connections with decision-makers.

The San Diego Union-Tribune Festival of Books (SDUTFOB) presents a day of opportunities for book enthusiasts on August 19, 2023. From workshops to Q&A sessions with featured authors, SDUTFOB will make your day productive with long-lasting effects. ReadersMagnet, a San Diego-based self-publishing and marketing agency, is honored to be one of the sponsors at the event. As such, we make sure that our authors will experience a better standing at the book festival.

Sessions with Award-Winning Authors

The San Diego Union-Tribune usually invites prominent authors to speak at the festival. For instance, SDUTFOB has already featured Michael Conolly (the bestselling author of thirty-seven novels and one nonfiction), John Grisham (author of forty-seven consecutive #1 bestsellers, translated into nearly fifty languages), and Eva Chen (author and head of fashion partnerships at Instagram).

This year, the book festival organizers invited highly acclaimed authors as panels and guests for the Q&A sessions, such as the three-time Edgar Awards winner T. Jefferson Parker, the award-winning author Guadalupe García McCall, and award-winning lyricist Bernie Taupin. Joining the sessions of any of the featured authors makes you more updated with the best practices in the world of books and writing. It also broadens your network of solid connections.

Book Display and Book Signing

Aside from featured author sessions, fairgoers at The San Diego Union-Tribune Festival of Books will enjoy seeing a flood of literary masterpieces, from children’s books to autobiographical fiction. ReadersMagnet alone will display more than a hundred books, ranging from memoirs to humorous fiction. Discovering new book titles with unique stories will surely excite a bookworm or a word connoisseur. It also gives self-published books the exposure they need.

Participants will also get a chance to meet, greet, and get a book signed by an author. As a sponsor, ReadersMagnet is also honored to feature and facilitate the book signing of eight veteran authors. We’re glad to have Dr. Ric Vandett (author of Hurdles: Surviving Difficult Times), Hope Raymond (author of Where in the World Is God?), Cynthia D. Chase (writer of From Stressed to Blessed), Frank E. McGinity (the brain behind Get Off Your Street), Renee’ Servello (writer of four books including You’re Kidding… I’m a Senior?), Carol Ann Langford (author of The Speed of Passion), and Sharon Arrindell (the bestseller author of Armored and Victorious).
