I’m pleased with the results of tonight’s foray into the unknown realm of Ladies Night. Invited by the owner of Green Things Garden, Gift and Maintenance Services – Donna White – to come and sign my book, I arrived about 5:30 p.m. to get myself set up.
Business in the retail store, all decked out in its Christmas finery, was brisk and my book and I attracted a lot of attention. But best of all, by 8:45 p.m., I had sold… drum roll, please… six copies!
If you missed me tonight, I’ll be at the Mallorytown Legion on Sunday, November 18th, from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. signing copies of my novel, A Shadow in the Past.
Will I do Ladies Night again next year? YES! And maybe by this time next year, I’ll have two books out there to sell. Guess that means I best get my skates on and get book #2 submission ready.
Tomorrow night, Friday, November 16th, I’ll be taking part in the 21st Annual Ladies Night.
Brockville and area businesses open Friday night until 10:00 p.m. with tax free savings.
I’ll be signing and selling my novel, A Shadow in the Past, at Green Things Garden, Gift & Maintenance Services from 6:00-10:00. I hope to see you there.
And be sure to visit all five stores to enter the draw for the Grand Prize!
There will be door prizes and refreshments at the various locations throughout the evening.
The third annual event takes place on Sunday, November 18th, from 8:00 a.m. through to 3:00 p.m.
I’ll be there selling copies of my debut novel, A Shadow in the Past, in addition to the other vendors who will have their wares available to purchase, too.
And don’t forget all those delectable baked goods that are only available during the festive season.
Come out and show your support.
Hope to see you there!
It’s been a busy day for me here today at Celtic Connexions. First of all, I’m taking part in Janice Horton’s Spellbindingly Fun Blog Party, celebrating the launch of her new novella How Do You Voodoo? And secondly, because it had been arranged some time ago that I would do a spot for our cable company’s program Reader’s Corner.
The show’s host, Doreen Barnes, and I chatted about my novel, A Shadow in the Past. What made me decide I would write a book? Why I set it where I did? We talked about my characters, Sarah & Robert, the research involved, and what my favourite scene is.
I could give you all the answers now in my blog post, but then you wouldn’t want to watch the program when it comes on next month.
At the end of our interview, I was asked to read a very short (about 30 seconds) passage from my book. So I picked one that I hope will entice you into purchasing your very own copy.
For those of you who are local to Brockville and have cable you’ll be able to watch it on local channel 10. I’ll post the date and air time when I get it, but with so many of my followers being scattered to the four corners of the world, the episode should be shown on their website. TV Cogeco Readers Corner. Once the show goes online, I’ll post the complete link.
Not quite the ear-to-ear grin that I had in Kansas but still looking pretty pleased with myself.
You can buy A Shadow in the Past from the following:
and if you’re local to Brockville, you can buy it from Leeds County Books, 73 King Street West or directly from me email@example.com
