I will be at the Boerne Book and Arts Festival on Saturday, October 14. If you’re in the area, stop on by for a celebration of the arts.
This weekend, I had the wonderful privilege of being a part of the Wimberley Book Festival. These festivals are beneficial for many reasons. First and foremost, they give me the opportunity to mingle and network with other writers. I meet interesting people, find out about writing opportunities, and sell a few books in the process.
I woke up at the crack of dawn and drove for an hour and half to the Wimberley Community Center. I was pleasantly surprised to walk in the door and find my book, Sand & Sutures, listed on a banner among other award winning authors. This was a positive boost to my day.
Once I unloaded everything from the car, I began to set up my table, which included my own banner, several promotional items and props, and of course several copies of my books.
Authors from all over the state of Texas who write in every genre under the sun had their booths set up throughout the room. Influxes of crowds came in at varying intervals and explored each table. They took business cards, discussed books, and filled their bags with giveaways.
Throughout the day, I had the opportunity to reconnect with authors I hadn’t seen in awhile. I also made a little video blurb about my books, spoke with quite a few potential readers who stopped by my table to say hello, gave away a mug full of syringe pens, and sold a few books. Overall, I’d say the day was successful, and I look forward to attending this event again next year.
I will be signing books and talking about the Scrubs series at the Wimberley Book Festival June 10th. If you stop by, you can also get a sneak peek into the new project I’m working on.
Tune in tomorrow morning, July 11th for Great DaySA , KENS 5 from 9-10:00a.m. to see me and other authors as we promote the 2nd Annual San Antonio Indie Book Fest! 📚📚
See you all on Saturday!
Post script: Making an appearance on a live morning news show was an interesting experience. Live studios are busy places.
We participated in the live studio audience, watched each bit, and went live to promote our upcoming book fest. Overall, it was fun and entertaining. Hopefully we’ll get a few locals to show up on Saturday.
