So far in my book-promoting journey (something I am not strong in), I’ve had the opportunity to be a part of a couple of different events that have helped me in marketing and book selling. For that, I'm truly grateful.
My first one was as part of the Thousand Islands Book Festival. I wrote a detailed post about that here.
My second event was a festival for the Revitalization for the Town of Antwerp, NY called Operation Restore Antwerp.
I actually ended up selling out of all the books that I had at this event, and my Dad had to run to his house and get one that they had there. The people and the community there are very supportive of authors and love to read.
And, now, this Saturday, I’ll be at the Thousand Islands Museum in Clayton, NY, selling and signing books along with about 20 other authors from around the area. If you are a local, please come out and support this event. Clayton, NY is a beautiful village on the St. Lawrence River, and so you could always do some sight-seeing at the same time.
Also, another cool thing is that my book is available for purchase in the local bookstore, The Reading Room in Watertown, NY. So you can always visit that store in the Salmon Run Mall!
Come out on Saturday!
