Happy 4th of July!
So- we put up the table to sell and sign books last night at the Chelmsford Country Fair Celebration, part of the 4th of July events. Lot of work from my understanding family, who helped set up and break down.
I'm declaring victory! We didn't sell hundreds of books, but we did break even (after fees to put up a table)-- and that's not counting the many people who are going to find my books as e-books.
Kindle and Nook were the big requests, and I'd hand them a pamphlet with all the info.
New readers are a good thing.
Tough gig, not for the faint of heart, but worthwhile. Shame we couldn't get back out today, but books don't do well in the rain. Cleared up later, but we don't get special dispensation.
Sold a lot of my story collection Halls of Horror-- do you think it had anything to do with the fact of a graveyard behind us?
