Christian Romance authors, as with those from other subgenres, promote their books through author programs such as book signings and speaking engagements. Authors may decide to do so at libraries, bookstores and conferences, among other venues. Christian and Inspirational writers also locate their events at churches, which makes a lot of sense based on the themes of and audience for their novels.

Social media’s popularity has led to authors’ use of Twitter, Facebook, etc.

to engage with their fans and, for instance, hold virtual book tours. These book tours allow them to connect with readers via book and specialty blogs. Listed below are a few online and in-person author events. Link to them for further information, as well as how to register, if necessary.
