Tammy and I are alive and well adventuring. We have been on dirt in the Big Horn Mountains in Wyoming and finally (or reluctantly) came out to find connectivity. We’ve been offline for awhile and loving it. Headed South from Billings, Montana the long way. Working on getting lost. All my book signings are done for this trip. Just found out the book is selling really well! Should be home in about a week or so unless something interesting comes up. I will be posting many Lessons From the Road when I get home and can download and recharge.
Month: July 2015

I Survived My First Book Signing at Del Rio Vineyards and Winery in Gold Hill, Oregon!
I just finished my first book signing and loved it. The poeple were wonderful and the wine was rich. The questions were very thoughtful leading me to the back story that inspired Almost Human; and some were so persceptive they got me thinking of the direction of my sequel, More Than Human. Many thanks to Hugh and Suzie Schoonover and the people at Del Rio for hosting this. I’m definitely less anxious about my next one in Billings!
What the Hell is a Book Signing/reading?
Tomorrow, Sunday, July 12, at 3pm, I will do my first book signing/reading at Del Rio Vineyards and Winery in Gold Hill, Oregon.
I honestly don’t have a clue of what you do at one of these things. My agent was not much help as she suggested I “just be myself and sell books.”
I have to say that all the marketing part of the publishing business is a real mystery to me. I didn’t realize how much time I would be pulled away from writing my sequel, More than Human, to fulfill obligations that were in the “small print.” While it will be exciting to meet people in person who have read my book, Almost Human, I am really nervous about doing this as I am completely out of my element. It borders on embarassing to me.
I plan to give the backstory of what inspired me to write the novel and some of what is behind the characters. Maybe talk about the craft of writing and answer questions if there are any.
I would love advice and suggestions. My reading is at 3pm tomorrow. HELP!
