When Bibliomotion published its first list in the spring of 2012, we took notice that the majority of our authors were based in Boston. That gave us an idea: let’s bring everyone together in person to make introductions and share what we know. We called it a “BiblioBash” and the Bibliomotion community was born.

The idea behind the Bibliomotion community is to create a community of authors. After all, almost all authors go through a similar journey when writing and promoting a book. And it can be a lonely journey. So why not share information and create an inner fan club?

We do this in several ways:

BiblioHours: Monthly conference calls, typically to cover a marketing topic, often with a featured guest.

BiblioBashes: Held twice a year in our Boston office, spring and fall, often with featured guests from the media or other marketing firms.

Bibliomotion LinkedIn Group: A place for our authors to share information and ask questions.

Since that first publishing list of five talented authors, we’ve added at least eighty more members to the community, many of whom have become friends and colleagues. We love that.
