The Paseo Verde Library’s book signing event in Henderson, Nevada, on Saturday, March 28, 2015, was successful. Because of the large number of local authors, and the relatively small size of the library, it was necessary to divide the signings into two sessions. Even so, it was necessary for authors to share tables to accommodate all of the local talent that vied for attention from the library’s patrons.
I participated as one of thirty-five writers assigned to the morning session. Another thirty-five held forth in the afternoon. I sold and autographed copies of Eagle Talons, The Iron Horse Chronicles–Book One. The books are visible on the table in front of me. Also visible is a table-top poster of Bear Claws, The Iron Horse Chronicles–Book Two, announcing its availability in November 2015. Friends of mine from SCBWI Word Worms and Anthem Authors, the two local writing groups in which I participate, were also represented among the local authors. I hope when I next meet with them, they can each report having had a successful day.
After the library event, I moved to the Sun City Anthem Annual Crafts Fair. Unfortunately, Anthem Authors, the group with which I participated, was assigned an area that was far from the beaten path of shoppers browsing for the various arts and crafts provided by residents of the community. None of our group appears to be satisfied with the outcome of this event. I certainly was not. Hopefully, we can talk the organizers into allotting us a more prominent location next year.
My next book signing will be April 7, 2015, at the Hastings bookstore in Bullhead City, Arizona. If you are in the Laughlin, Nevada, area on that day, drop by Hastings between 11 am and 2 pm.
