The idea of inviting three other authors to join me in back-to-back book signings in two neighboring Kentucky towns began to take shape in my mind. They had to live near enough to my hometown to make it convenient for them.
I live in the western tip of the state so it was easy to include:
|PAMELA HEARON from SOUTHERN ILLINOIS|
|LAUREAN BROOKS from NORTHWEST TENNESSEE|
|DANIELLE THORNE from SOUTH OF ATLANTA|
We agreed on October and promoted our book signings as a four authors from four states event.
|LINDA SWIFT, COORDINATOR OF BOOK SIGNING, IN MURRAY UNIVERSITY BOOKSTORE|
After many emails flying back and forth, we correlated four busy schedules with the available dates for the Murray University Bookstore on Friday and Etcetera Coffeehouse on Saturday, Oct. 14-15. It was such fun meeting for the first time and matching the real people with our Cyberspace images.
Saturday we had an entire room at Etcetera Coffeehouse to display our books and other materials. In the adjoining room customers ordered from the coffee bar and lingered to talk and listen to keyboard music furnished by my husband who volunteered (well, I did twist his arm just a bit) to play for our three hour signing. But after he saw flyer photos of those glamorous authors he was more than willing to join us!In retrospect, we agree the weekend was a big success. The visiting authors met many new people, made contacts for future sales, and learned of new promotional possibilities. And we are already talking about another event in 2012 and working toward making it even better .
"Caught in the passions of love and war, will Clarissa and Philip be faithful to their vows...or listen to their hearts?"
"Nothing would make Josette happier than to be settled, but dark brooding Captain Carter rides into her life with news that ruins everything."
"No one ever said earning the title 'His Hotness' would be easy!"
"An Inspirational journey about healing after abuse. A young woman struggles to trust, forgive, and open her heart to love."
Thank you for visiting my blog today, and meeting these four talented, very busy authors. Please check out their books--you won't be disappointed!
