A Novel Adventure
Last week, I met with one of our local bookstores, A Novel Adventure, to talk about how to market my book, The Invisible Sister (when/if it ever comes out). It was, surprisingly, a really pleasant experience. Not that I thought the folks there would be mean or anything. I just didn't expect such enthusiasm! Not only did they have great ideas for a launch party in July, we also talked about capitalizing on their annual Halloween party. My book has witches, ley lines, spells and a magic store...a perfect tie-in for the holiday of spookiness! And a perfect time to sell and sign a spooky book!
On top of that, they invited me to participate in their March event celebrating Small Press Month. Even though The Invisible Sister isn't out yet, I can hand out rack cards and bookmarks, meet people and talk about life with a Small Press. All because of my great, local, indie bookstore. It really can't be said enough: support your indie stores, books and otherwise. They do so much for us, especially us writers!
