The parking lot of the shopping center was packed. Hardly any place to park. All these people had come to my signing? Heh, heh. I wish. It turns out Hobby Lobby, next door to Hastings, was having a hugh sale and half the town was there to snap up the bargains.
The signing went fine. The manager had made a beautiful sign with my book cover and info on it. They had a table covered in a lovely cloth and a small easel with my flyer on it. The coffee lady of Hard Rock Coffee Shop said I could have anything I wanted. I sold 5 books. I also talked to several "would be" writers who asked about my publisher and how hard was it to get published and things like that. I hope I didn't discourage them, but I was truthful.
The little kids loved my giveaways: horse head finger puppets and little dogs, as well as pencils and bookmarks. Not big sales, but meeting people who might buy next time made it a worthwhile afternoon. Let's see. I made about $1.00 an hour.
One book at a time.
