The Result!!!
This went well.
It was a holiday weekend when the weather was great.
Which is almost the kiss of death for a book signing.
The traffic at the store was a lot less than usual.
I just took the attitude that whenever somebody comes up and asks me some questions about writing I was going to give them the full treatment.
That happened probably 5 times so I ended up giving 5 mini-seminars on writing.
Those people were so grateful that they each bought multiple copies.
I was only one book away from selling out on B&R and sold a few each of the others.
So the day went well.
The manager was surprised everything went so well for me and so was I.

7/17/08
7:00pm
Federal Way Regional Library: Giving the workshop, The Journey From Unpublished to Self-Published to Published: You Can Do It! This is going to be a lot of fun. I really like this library so giving a talk there is going to be GREAT!

(FINAL WORD!)

This went well despite only one person showing up. A librarian told me that this happens quite a bit and to not feel bad about it.
I don't feel bad about it for one reason: The lady who was there got an in depth personal lesson on how to get her material up to professional standards. She took notes all the way through and seemed like she got a lot out of the information that I gave her. Helping someone attain their goal of becoming a published author was what I wanted to do. I accomplished that. She enthusiastically thanked me for the presentation.

4/21/08 3:00PM-Giving Workshop: "The Journey from Unpublished to Self-Published to Published: How YOU can do it!" University of Washington Tacoma Campus, Carwein Auditorium.

(Final Word!)

All went well; actually better than well. After about five minutes my nerves went away. I got the information out that I wanted to. People asked questions and I actually had intelligent answers to everything. At the end the people applauded. The organizer (Jennifer Campbell) told me that I seemed like a seasoned professional. The day went off really well. I am happy with the result.
