I just posted a Giveaway on Goodreads for Hiawassee - Child of the Meadow. Two books will be awarded to two different readers on October 17, 2014. Enter to win by clicking on the link to the right.
It is important for all authors to get their books before the public. Goodreads is a wonderful way for your many readers to see your latest creations.
Another way, is through book signings. Just pick up the phone and request a signing at a local store or in a location near your vacation site. Also, many of you will be traveling for the holidays later in the fall. Call bookstores in your destination city for a possible signing in their store. In order for them to get advertising out, call well in advance of the date - three to four weeks.
Always remember, a book signing is not about selling books. It's about getting your book and your name before the public. Greet them with a smile and a friendly visit. Pass out small cards with your name, book title and ISBN so they can consider buying your book that day or later. Have a fun time. If they aren't interested, it's not about you or your book. It's about their immediate reading needs. Enjoy your time and your opportunity to get your name out. Happy signing!
