Trade Shows, Here We Come!

One of the most rewarding venues we have found to introduce our Prairie books to potential readers is through trade shows. Since 2009, we have set up our booth at numerous shows in Saskatchewan and Manitoba and met hundreds of avid readers, many of whom have become loyal, repeat customers. We have also met would-be authors at these shows and worked with them to improve their manuscripts and get them ready for publication.

Here are some snapshots of recent trade shows as well as a list of where we'll be in the next few weeks.

We laugh - routinely and often - with the folks who stop at our booth.

Enough said.
(This funny sign was at one of the Swift Current booths across from us.)

We're ready to go at the 2012 Scattered Seeds show, in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
