About Nancy Fraser

Like most authors, Nancy began writing at an early age, usually on the walls and with crayons or, heaven forbid, permanent markers. Her love of writing often made her the English teacher’s pet, which, of course, resulted in a whole lot of teasing. Still, it was worth it. When not writing (which is almost never), Nancy dotes on her five beautiful grandchildren and looks forward to traveling and reading when time permits. Nancy lives in Atlantic Canada where she enjoys the relaxed pace and colorful people.

Promoting for the Holidays

It’s a fact, readers read all year long. Unfortunately for an author’s sales prospects, the winter holiday season (from Thanksgiving to the New Year) is the slowest season for reading. There are just too many other things to do. So … Continue reading

Romancing the Reader

I absolutely love reader events. I especially like the smaller conferences of 200 or less, with a great reader-to-author ratio. I look forward to the opportunity to put my promotional materials and budget to good use. I’ve given up on … Continue reading
