Authors Should Pitch Stories Based On These Upcoming Days in The Rest Of 2020


Calendar :: Milton Public Schools

One of the ways authors and publishers can promote their books is to build a story around an upcoming holiday or honorary day theme. For instance, New Year’s Day and January’s resolutions are good for promoting self-help books, diet books, and business books. February is great for books on dating, romance novels, and relationships with Valentine’s Day -- or for books about culture and race for Black History Month.

Every day, week, or month has something to rally around. So what can you tie into for the rest of the year?

Here are a few dozen dates to pay attention to:

August
National Inventors month
Diversity Awareness Month
Work Like A Dog Day (August 5th)
World entrepreneur’s Day (August 21st)
