I’m telling you guys–this being an author stuff is scary.
I have officially made my first public appearance as an author.
And the worst thing was, it was a LOCAL event, so people knew who I was.
To my delight, I only met a few people with whom I was aquatinted.
Anyway, onto things of more substance…
The event was a kind of bizarre/fair sort of thing. I’m not really sure what it was…to be honest, I’m kinda shocked our little redneck community even did something like this. ;-) However, despite the blistering heat and general redneckedness of the event, I was surprised at the reaction to my book. I sold 15 copies in just a few hours! Is that not completely awesome or what?!?!
Something else super awesome (and quite frightening) is that my book was featured in a local news publication. I got the entire center spread of the paper!
In the next few weeks, I’m going to send out a few more press releases in hopes of getting more attention in my local area. Hopefully, the lure of the book being about my area will be enough to find new readers!
