With holidays quickly approaching, opportunities abound for writers and readers to come together. Yesterday, I had the opportunity to participate in a Holiday Shop Stop at my local community center. I brought books to sell. others brought jewelry, Pampered Chef, and other represented merchandise.
The day went quickly with a number of people stopping in the see what I had..."you wrote these?" What a great opportunity to tell others not only of my books, but of North Carolina's coastal history! Yeah, I sold some books!
Next up: Speaking/signing at our fabulous regional history museum during Autumn Leaves Festival (Friday, October 14, 3-5 p.m.). If you're in town, stop by and say hello!
In November, I'm off to New Bern/Oriental for signing/book selling (and a little bit of run).
Then, December 11 will be my official book launch party at Trios Restaurant in Mount Airy (2-5:00 p.m.) -- come celebrate with me! December 17 I'll be in Winston-Salem for a signing at Barnhill's Books on Burke Street. If you need to do some holiday shopping, this is a great place to do it! Wine, books, and other neat gifts await!
'Tis the season for shopping! Enjoy!
