If you’d like to join the community that exists to support Bay Area publishing through networking and educational events, it’s now easier than ever.

Why sponsor Book Promotion Forum / Books & Booze

The heart of our activities are our monthly educational programs and networking events. Every month we have a program where networks are strengthened and friendships are formed. It’s a chance for mentors to shine and for up-and-comers to fill in the gaps. We are treated to a wide variety of professional perspectives on how to market and publicize books.

There are three ways you can support our work. You or your organization can become a VIP sponsor at different pre-set levels, make a variable one-time or monthly donation of any amount you wish, or you can join our newsletter for free below to find out about our events.
