The Promo Continues …

Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

Two weeks into real book time and loving it!  My Kingston book launch was reasonably well attended, including my 91-year-old uncle.  I spent most of my time trying to think of original things to write in people’s newly purchased copies!  I also read to my loyal audience and answered their thoughtful questions … then was asked to read some more!  I took that as a compliment!  Following day I was interviewed for a local CKWS television program Live @5 with a great host, Heather Butts … Now, I’m in Toronto spreading the word!  So far, not one of the independent bookstores I’ve called has said No to stocking my book!  The responses range from wanting to see and read first to taking six copies!  How wonderful to discover that there is such support for new authors out there!!

I’m in a whole new phase of my writing life … the post-writing part to be exact … Now, instead of sitting in front of my computer creating or correcting, I’m out promoting, distributing, and selling my book!  I think this is definitely the fun part … Did first bookstore reading, first online mag interview, organizing first launch … Yes!
