Many writers prefer the solitude of their office, where they can sit and just write the book of their heart. The next step is getting the book published. Then you have to figure out how to get people to actually buy your book.
Sooner or later you are going to have to step away from the comfort zone behind your computer. You are going to have to do some kind of promotion work, which I have been discussing in many articles now.
This time I am moving you the solitary writer into the world of sales and personal promotion. Now I am discussing the sometimes scary world of doing book signings. They aren’t really as bad as they seem, especially if you prepare yourself well. My article, “Book Signing Event: Making It a Good Experience,” will help you with the process from consideration to preparation to the actual event.
