Can you promote by speaking?

After the little talk I gave at the self publishing panel in Sutton I began to review the sales methods that writers use.It seems that not using social media means I am depriving myself of customers. However, when I gave a talk to a local group the next day out of the 30 people present only three had computers. They were happy to buy copies of all my books, and the little poetry book I had produced with three other poets. Reading passages out loud makes the works come alive and encourages the audience to find out more.
It seems that setting my novels locally is also a draw. It will soon be time to start on the next one. I write from September to March but I’m plotting already!
