Promoting a fantasy novel

Got asked today by a new author for advice on promoting a first fantasy novel. Here’s what I had to say:

For starters, you should have a look at the promotion stuff on my website, particularly this 37-minute podcast.

You should also read this article by me on getting good press, and this one by me on self-promotion for writers.

You asked about awards in the field. Here’s a comprehensive list.

And you asked which conventions to attend. Since you’re in Florida, I’d certainly recommend the International Conference on the Fantastic in the Arts, and I also highly recommend the World Fantasy Convention.

Best of luck!
