Book Signings

I love to do book signings.

Everything I've heard and read says authors who aren't famous rarely sell many books at events like that, and many people think they're a waste of time. And, to be honest, I've never sold a lot of books at signings.

But I keep doing them because I think they're fun.

The group signings are the best, because we not only get to meet and chat with people who come to meet us and look at our books, we also get to spend time hanging out with other authors.

As my bumper sticker says, "Bookaholics Unite!" and book signings are great places for that to happen.

And, even if we don't sell hundreds of books, the events are good publicity and may lead to future sales.

I've got two group signings scheduled in May, and can hardly wait for them.

On May 10th Sierra Writers will hold one at the Nevada City Winery in Nevada City, CA from noon until 6:00 p.m.

And on May 17th  the Gold Country Book Festival will be at the Garden at the Auburn Library in Auburn, CA from 10:00 a.m. until 2 p.m.

If anyone reading this post will be in either of those areas on the day of the signing I'd love to see you.

Good for you! I wish my writers club had more book signings other than the one on Black Friday weekend (which they'll have again.) Hope you get lots of exposure, make new friends, greet old ones, and sell a lot of books.
