Well, my book signing is fast approaching (only nine days away) and I can’t help but worry—will there be a good turnout? I’ve read that at some book signings only a few people show up and at others no one at all.
It’s more difficult for Indie Authors, especially new ones, to get the publicity that traditionally published authors do. But, I’m plugging away with tweeting, facebooking, tumbluring, Co-Promoting, word of mouthing, just any and all types of publicity I can think of for my book. I’ve heard Rome wasn’t built in a day, my guess it wasn’t built in a month either. That’s why reviews are so important to Indie Authors. It helps build their audience. Also, when you Facebook or tweet about an author, it creates a buzz about them and drives prospective readers to check out the book to see what the buzz is about.
I will be doing a radio interview on KSIS, Wednesday, July 16, at 9 a.m. along with my editor Mary-Nancy Smith of Eagle Eye Editing, about my books and the book signing. Be sure to tune in and listen.
This morning I checked in at the Reader’s World’s website, and noticed there are 27 people coming and 12 maybes. That’s great! Just yesterday I had people calling to say they’re sorry they can’t make it, and asked if I would sign a copy and put it back for them to pick up later. Happy to do it!
I am so excited about my books. Not only will INESCAPABLE:The Beginning be there, but book two INESCAPABLE:Remembering will the there, also. I hope to see everyone there on July 19, 5 – 7 p.m. at Reader’s World, in State Fair Shopping Center.
