Tomorrow I will have my first self-instigated book signing and selling event. I've done all the advertising that I can without seeming creepy or desperate. The game and coffee shop, Pearl Street G & C House, has never had an author event.
So it's a first for everyone!
I have pulled together all my materials and even some extras. A great idea was presented to me with selling my older, self-published books, as "pre-releases."
This might be a great opportunity to:
1. Sell my old stock that I thought to be unsellable
2. Offer to new readers a chance at reading a book BEFORE final touches are made (editing, cover design, story lines, etc.)
3. Offer new readers a big discount due to the status of the book
4. Build my email list in order to let people know when my next book is available
All that is left is hope that the rain system on the forecast treats us well and we'll be on our way!
I'll keep you updated!
