Organizing a virtual book fair differs from the usual in-person event, but the goal remains: to celebrate stories and storytellers.

Many independent authors often need help allocating sufficient budgets to promote their books. Nevertheless, authors can use numerous cost-effective and creative techniques to market their books and attract new readers. One way is by participating in or organizing a virtual book fair offering vast outreach opportunities. 

With countless books to discover, an online book fair, like The Festival of Storytellers (TFOS), is a platform that nurtures a love for reading. It’s a treasure trove of free-flowing ideas and a delightful way to explore the world of literature.

TFOS: A Seed of Opportunity

The impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the global economy is well-known. Like other creative and cultural sectors, the self-publishing industry has been significantly impacted by decreasing the number of physical book fairs. ReadersMagnet (RM) took the crisis as a chance to showcase the company’s ingenuity in helping authors share their stories, giving birth to The Festival of Storytellers

Now, in its fifth chapter, TFOS is a virtual book fair dedicated to helping self-published authors get heard. The convenience, creative freedom, and networking opportunities make TFOS a game-changing event in publishing. Whether you are a bookworm searching for the next story to explore or an independent author seeking a novel way to market your book, TFOS Chapter 5 is an event you would want to attend.
