Creating an Author Press Kit

An author press kit is a package of information about a particular writer. They vary somewhat in context, complexity, and appearance, but most will include basic information about the writer's services or recent projects, as well as contact information.

Not everyone needs a full-blown press kit. However, almost all writers are asked for basic bio information at some point in their career, either in preparation for an interview, by their publisher, or as part of promotion of a workshop or book signing. Having the information in a Web site helps, but sometimes it's nice to have something in hardcopy to give out at events. Some people may not remember to check out your Web site when they get back to work or home, or may simply prefer having your information on paper to remind them. Having this information prepared ahead of time can save you inconvenience and stress later on, and could also impress an editor or potential client.
