On book events

Some handy advice for authors about book events, from the excellent HarperStudio blog, The 26th Story. Always remember that as an author, booksellers can be your greatest allies. It’s been more than 6 years since I stopped working at Barnes & Noble, but I still remember the authors who were nicest to me when they came in for any reason--whether for an event or just to sign stock or see their books on display--and I always talked up their books to anyone looking for a recommendation.

  2. I agree. That's why I am always happy to chat away to anyone who engages me about my books - I know it's a cliche but, after all, if it were not for these people buying my books and these people selling my books, they pay my wages!
