Thankfully, we had no rain unlike last year when it teemed all day. The good weather brought out even more people and we had a steady stream coming through the community room of the local library.

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. – See more at: http://www.melanierobertson-king.com/wp02/?m=201309#sthash.OxjV5DmS.dpuf

I sold four copies of A Shadow in the Past, doubling last year’s sales.

Other Eastern Ontario authors participating yesterday were:

Vicki Delany

Violette Malan

Gretchen Huntley

Lisa Timpf

Jeanne Patric

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 for a third time next year (that is if they’ll have me). I’ve already marked the date in my calendar – September 19, 2015.

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?
