Facebook Launch Parties

The Women’s Fiction Writers Association hosts quarterly launch parties on the WFWA Facebook page. These events provide:

  • Greater visiblity for WFWA published authors
  • Increased awareness of women's fiction among readers
  • Opportunity for readers to interact directly with authors
  • A benefit that will attract more published authors to our group

WFWA members with a women’s fiction release during the same quarter of the launch party are welcome to submit their book for participation. Each quarterly launch party will be capped at twelve (12) authors. Authors whose books meets the criteria but cannot be included in the party due to the cap will be spotlighted on the Women's Fiction Writers Association webpage as well as the Women's Fiction Writers Association public Facebook page. 

Each participating author will have a thirty-minute block to engage with attendees. At the end of each author’s party time, a name will be randomly chosen to receive a signed copy of that new release.
