School Visit Tips


Sylvan Dell publicist Sara Dobie posted some advice on her blog today, from two of the top-selling authors at Sylvan Dell. Why do they sell so many books? Because they do so many school visits! Click here to read more.

On the same note, be sure to catch Alexis O'Neill's column, The Truth About School Visits, in the SCBWI Bulletin. Alexis always has outstanding advice for authors interested in developing this part of their career.

Terry - Thanks for the "shout out" for my SCBWI Bulletin column about school visits - and thanks for this link to Sara's great post. She echoes what I've heard from countless marketing folks in publishing. They all tell me that they know the authors who are doing school visits just by the spikes in their book sales.
Best -
