Writers’ Corner at the Turkey Fair

Writers’ Corner

It’s a shame it rained on the Turkey Fair but that might have been a bonus for the authors gathered at the Writers’ Corner in the community room of the local library. We had a steady flow of people coming through most of the day, partly because of the rain, and partly to get their ‘passport’ initialed. By the end of the day, we were working with some pretty soggy paper.

Every author sold at least one physical copy of their book(s) and many of the customers passing through were thrilled to hear that some of us had e-book versions, too, with kobo being the e-reader of choice it seemed.

Other Eastern Ontario authors participating yesterday were:

Vicki Delany, who, in my opinion had the prime location for her table as she could see people as they entered the library. And can she work a room! Wow!

Violette Malan

I first met Violette by attending one of her writing workshops and Vicki through attending the Scene of the Crime Mystery Festival on Wolfe Island. She, too, gives workshops and I’ve been to them when she’s come to the Thousand Islands Writers Festival.

I enjoyed myself immensely and I’ll be back next year (that is if they’ll have me). I’ve already marked the date in my calendar.

Since kobo seemed to be the e-reader of choice, does anyone know if there’s a way of tracking your sales through them similar to how novel rank works for amazon?
