Killer Reading From Your Book

How to Do A Killer Reading From Your Book by Lev Raphael

Authors are often unprepared for one of the most important aspects of publicizing their work: public readings at bookstores, libraries, and other venues. Whether they’re shy or not, most authors don’t have experience in public speaking, but even if they do, they don’t realize one of the key elements of the event: it’s a performance. The best way to succeed in this crucial component of publicity is by approaching your reading as if you were an actor studying a script, as well as the director presenting a vision of the work. Without this double vision and without thoughtful preparation, you can’t succeed and wow your audience. Learn how to craft, shape and prepare for a public reading. It’s never too early to plan, and never too late to begin. WORKSHOP
