My book signing at Barnes & Noble on Stephanie Street in Henderson, Nevada, on March 12, 2016, was a great success. We sold every copy of Eagle Talons, The Iron Horse Chronicles–Book One, and made a substantial dent in the store’s stock of Bear Claws, The Iron Horse Chronicles–Book Two.
Neil and Nora Bross had purchased Eagle Talons during my book signing at Barnes & Noble last year, and they returned this year to pick up a copy of Bear Claws. A most rewarding experience for a writer.
Nora happens to be a fellow member of Sun City Anthem Authors. She has provided constructive criticism of my writing in the past that has resulted in a better story.
The book signing event officially ran from 1 PM until 4 PM, but I got started a little early and stayed a bit late. The entire experience was enjoyable. I was able to talk with many customers about how and why I wrote The Iron Horse Chronicles. Readers were duly impressed that Eagle Talons had won the Bronze Will Rogers Medallion Award for 2015 for younger readers.
The management and staff at Barnes & Noble were most helpful throughout the process. Every half-hour the store made a public address announcement inviting folks to come to the front of the store to meet me. Many readers were interested in knowing when the final book in the trilogy, Golden Spike, would be available. I invited them to follow me on my website where I would soon announce the plans for publication.
I look forward to returning to my local Barnes & Noble store next year to sign copies of all three books in The Iron Horse Chronicles trilogy.
