Start with Where You Are!

As the coordinator of the Read Local Challenge for Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, Washington DC, and West Virginia since 2015, I've had the opportunity to help hundreds of KidLit Creators, teachers, librarians, and booksellers come together for book events, school/library visits, signings, and literature-promoting partnerships.

My unique perspective as an author-turned-part-time-publicist has given me insights, as teachers, librarians, and booksellers have told me the things they wished KidLit Creators knew when approaching them to set up book events and school/library visits. I'm excited to share this knowledge with you, and I would love to help you put together your personal marketing plan.

Hi, I'm Veronica Bartles

As an author of both picture books and young adult novels, and the director of the MD/VA/DE/DC/WV Read Local Challenge since 2015, I've had a lot of experience with school and library visits. Not only have I given presentations to audiences of all ages (from very young pre-K through high school), but through the Read Local Challenge, I have helped many authors connect with schools and libraries to showcase their own presentations.

I'm excited to share with you the things I've learned through the trial-and-error of setting up my own events, and from the conversations I've had with teachers, librarians, administrators and booksellers while coordinating the Read Local Challenge.
