In November, I will be hosting my first book signing event.
The manager of our local Library, Museum & Arts Centre has offered me one of their activity rooms, free of charge, for two hours on the morning of Saturday 19 November. The rooms are situated off the main foyer and therefore in direct sight of anyone entering the building.
I’ve never done anything like this before, so arranging it is going to be a steep learning curve, but feedback so far has been very encouraging. I’m both nervous and excited about the prospect of talking with people about my books, and hopefully some of them might even buy a copy!
At the moment, I’ve only sent out invitations via my Facebook page, but I plan on commissioning some posters to advertise the event, and will be contacting our local paper next month to ensure that they cover it too.
In the meantime, if you have any advice or suggestions on any aspect of planning this event, please share!
