I want to reach out to all of my loyal supporters and let you know I will be in a booth at the Tucson Festival of Books on Saturday and Sunday, March 10th and 11th, at The University of Arizona. I’m going with some other published authors and aspiring writers to try and sell some books and introduce our books to more people. It is my goal to attend four of these events this year and this is the first of those events for 2018!
I would love to ask anyone who has already purchased my book or would like to purchase more of my books at a discount and is either in Phoenix or Tucson to come to the event. I will be doing book signings for everyone who shows up and I will also be sharing where I am at with my new projects as so much in my life has changed just since the New Year. If you go to the site and don’t see me on the list of authors, that’s because I am going as an exhibitor. I haven’t quite made the big time yet. But, I’d love to see all my friends and associates from the Tucson area, and for those of you in Phoenix, looking for a day trip to get away, I’d love to see you as well.
Building my brand and breaking into this published author realm has not been easy, which is not surprising, but the help of my most loyal supporters has been amazing. I promised I would share where I was with my book sales, to this point between traditional sales and e-books, I have eclipsed 250 and moving slowly but surely to 500, my hope is this book sale will give me a nice boost.
As I mentioned, I will be attending at least 4 book events this year. I’m already beginning to coordinate for the Los Angeles Festival in April and I will provide more information on that as I get it in the coming weeks. I have not settled in on which others I will be attending, most likely they will be later this year and somewhere in the Southwest or Northwest.
So, to close out today’s post, I just want to remind everyone to please come and join me at the Tucson Festival of Books, the 10th and 11th of March. I will be doing book signings, sharing current updates with my current businesses, share more of my story, AND, I will be offering the opportunity on how you can share your stories in my forthcoming books. If you feel you have a compelling story that relates to my upcoming book topics, I want to help you tell that story and we can include it in my upcoming books. I will talk more about this at the event and on upcoming blogs. If you have questions about this or think you have a good idea, please let me know and we can begin to collaborate.
I am very excited to be able to see everyone. Please let me know if you plan to attend, so I can look for you. I will be attending some business meetings at the event while in Tucson that weekend, but if I know you are coming, I will be looking for you. No one is expecting me to have many people show up and with little more than a week’s notice it will be tough, but I am confident we’ll make our presence known!
Thanks everyone! I hope you all have a phenomenal weekend and I look forward to seeing many of you in Tucson.
