Advertise in 2021!

Did you know that 2021 will be Crime Bake’s 20th Anniversary? We hope these trying times of 2020 will be a distant memory and that we’ll be celebrating together!

We are offering sponsorships of coffee hours, cocktail receptions, dessert spreads, swag, and more. How about championing a champagne toast for all?

As a sponsor, you will be admired and acknowledged for being a supporter of our wonderful community. Crime Bake attendees are some of the most influential mystery readers in New England. They read crime fiction and discuss books and authors across the real and virtual worlds all year, so your sponsorship or ad can make a lasting impression.

As an added plus, if you want to be a sponsor for 2021, you will receive an additional acknowledgement at our 2020 virtual celebration as our thank you!

If you’re interested in a major sponsorship, contact us for more information. Now is the time to plan! Email us at [email protected]

Interested in the opportunity to include promotional items advertising your new release, blog, or writing-related service to the New England Crime Bake community?

We will accept bookmarks, business cards, postcards, pens, and pencils as inclusions in next year’s conference tote bags. All other sorts of swag items should be approved before purchasing the service by contacting [email protected] with questions. Inclusion in the swag bag needs to be confirmed by October 14, 2021.

Please plan to supply 300 items in order to have one included in each bag. All items for inclusion should be sent by October 21, 2021.

If you’re an author, publisher, or writing services provider…here’s your chance to promote your next release, your blog, or your website by advertising in the 2021 New England Crime Bake program.

Even if you can’t attend the conference, your ad can!
