Program for Saturday, May 21, 2022

“But I’m a WRITER! I don’t know how to sell my books…"

Paula F. Winskye has been writing stories most of her life. Some of her earliest memories are of lying awake at night, imagining new plots for her favorite cartoons and television shows. She discovered horses at age twelve, read all the books about girls and horses she could find; her first story featured a black Arabian race horse.

She continued to write, filling bookshelves with three-ring binders, each with a new novel she’d written, but did not seek publication for thirty years.

Sound familiar to anyone?

When she decided to try to get her works published, she went about it logically: bought book on writing, submitted query letters to small publishers, until she discovered Print-on-Demand (POD) publishing. She quit waiting on other people and released her first novel in 2003; she recently published number twenty-five.

Having a product (your novel) to sell means that, unless you’re wealthy enough to not care whether you spend money without recouping expenses or earning any profit, you have to sell your product! Fortunately, Paula has learned how to sell her books at Tucson Festival of Books and other in-person venues, as well as on Amazon and other websites.

Paula has promised to share the selling techniques she has learned, and talk about some of her experiences as a successful self-published author.
