Well, I did three booksignings Saturday and sold a grand total of 40 books. Not too shabby (although I must confess that a lot of those sales were to friends and family members). I’ll try to post some pictures soon.
It was pretty much what I expected. Good, bad, and a little ugly all rolled together. Some of the signings went better than others. I had a lot of interest at my local library and comic book store (and sold more books there). Some folks even wanted to have their picture taken with me, which was really cool.
Not so much interest at Barnes & Noble. I should have just set up a radio, and let it play “Walk on By” for two hours, because that’s what people were doing to me. And, yes, I got the do-you-work-here question more than once. Nobody asked me where the bathroom was, though.
And, of course, I chose this weekend of all weekends to get a head cold. I was not feeling well by the time the day was over with. Ah, well.Â It’s all part of being an author, I suppose.
I’ve got more stuff set up for this week. On Tuesday, May 8, I’ll be at Madagascar Coffee Co. in Kingsport, Tenn. from 5:30-7:30 p.m. I’ll be signing books, answering questions about writing and publishing, and hopefully doing a reading, if my throat will let me. Hope to see you there!
