I can't believe I posted on Monday and then didn't get to another post until today! This week has flown by and not nearly enough writing has been happening. 8v(
The week started out with my dad visiting; Tuesday, I worked by part time Girl Friday job; Wednesday, I had my hair cut; Thursday, I had a book signing; this morning I had a 4-H meeting; and tomorrow I teach one class at an all day 4-H event.
The book signing went well. The good thing about having a book signing at a Wine shop is you have the chance to pick up readers who you might not have otherwise attracted. Most of the people who bought my books last night, probably would have passed right over them on a shelf, but because I could visit with them and tell them they were set in Oregon and a little about myself, they bought the books.
And for once - I actually knew an author one of the people asked me about! In fact I had mentored a little with the author years ago. That got me a sale!
So I'm learning to put myself out a little more and hopefully ~ these things will get easier!
Does talking to an author make you more likely to purchase their book or does that not make a difference for you?
