I had decided to go to the Local Author Event in Gadsden, Alabama on Saturday May 19th. I didn’t know how it was going to turn out since it was raining, and it looked horrid outside.The sun was not shinning and the clouds were dark and grey. I was thinking that now one was going to want to get out of bed and drive in that weather.
I figured that I would sell only a couple books, but by eleven o’clock I had sold more than I thought I was going to sell the whole day. I had so many people interested in my book. Explaining the book to them, making them want to read the book and buy it made me so happy.
During the day I had seen some of my old friends that I have not seen in years. There was a wonderful author and an amazing women who I had shared a table with name Taomi Ray. I was so lucky to have met her. She was definitely someone I could connect and Share my experiences with as well as she sharing hers.
Later that day I had gotten to do an interview on a radio station. That was a really good experience. Talking about my book on air was really fun and I hope to do it again. While I had stepped away for the interview my wonderful assistant Katja had sat in my place. I was told she did an excellent job and I definitely believe it.
By the end of the day, the sun was shining and I had a great outcome. I met so many awesome people, and authors. Everyone was so friendly and it was such a great experience. I can’t wait till next year when I get to do it again, and if you are a local author you should come out and participate. It is a wonderful opportunity not just to get your book out there and sell it, but to meet new people and friends. I am so glad I went to the Gadsden Public Library.
