Gift Shows: The
Right Venue, A Great Spiel, and A Cute Puppy
no news that writers have to market and promote their own books nowadays. I’ve
always said that if I had to make a living in retails I’d probably starve. But,
I’ve learned something over the last few years that has made the task of
selling my own books easier. Yes, I still get tongue-tied if I have to ask
people for money, but I have no problem talking
about my books. I often speak at libraries, book groups, community
organizations, and writers’ conferences. Folks who attend these events are
there to learn and listen and not necessarily to spend money, which is okay
because I enjoy doing those engagements. And most times I pick up a stipend and
a few sales. But there are other events, especially this time of year, where I
can usually count on big sales.
