Writers; Wednesday: Scenes from a Book Signing

Our official sign at the Barnes & Noble last weekend:

And my friend Liz Matis and I enjoying a moment together at the signing!

While I can't say whether or not it translated into actual sales (we only had promo items to sign and give away, not print books - the store was trying something new to promote ebooks), it was nice to spend some time with fellow authors and also chat a bit with shoppers. The best strategy seemed to be to give chocolate along with signed promo items as a means of "introducing" ourselves as local writers. It's interesting: some people are totally open and excited about the idea, and others want to shuffle the other way as soon as you approach them.

Anyway, it was a nice way to spend a Saturday afternoon. Looks like we'll be back there again in time for Mother's Day!

That's great to hear the store was trying something different and promoting ebooks. Hope it resulted in sales for both of you. Lovely picture - thanks for sharing!
