2015 ArtFest After hours Report

Reporting in to say that the event on Saturday, June 13th, in LaPlata, MD., went well.

It was hot, but thankfully we had a breeze to prevent stagnant air. However, with the wind came an all day effort to keep literature from blowing off the tables, and the books getting blown off their easels.

The Life Journeys Writers Club founder, Yvonne Medley, was there passing out LJWC literature and postcards announcing the musical presentation of her Prison Plumbline novella.

There was a lot of activity at our tent; mostly for LJWC information. However, I did manage to sell 6 books that day, mainly in the last hour, which makes it a very profitable day.

And, finally, I am signing up for the annual Local Authors Reception on August 8th. It will be held at the Waldorf Library again, from 1 - 3 p.m.

I am happy to have these two opportunities to make some sales. I will continue to find other venues to  reach more of my target audience.

That's all for now. Till next time.

The LaPlata, MD 2015 Artfest

Hello once again.

I am happy to report that I will have a table set up at the 2015 Artiest in LaPlata again this year. I will be located next to the Life Journeys Writers Club tent, to the right of the town hall.

I have been waiting for another opportunity to reach more readers. Fingers crossed I do well on Saturday.

The one problem I will have is: where to put the six books? LOL. Yes, a wonderful problem, but still, I have only so much space. I think, what I will do is, keep Janie 1 & 2 in the box and set up the most recent books: Hooked Too (plus few copies of Hooked), Janie's Got It Bad (book 3) and Witchy Tales: Gail Warning. I will put out my post cards with the information on the books (one for each story) and will pass those out, instead.

It is really easier to buy the book directly from me as I sell them for $8.00 and there's no tax or postage added. But, one can always buy the Kindle version for $2.99 online.

I'm just excited to finally get out there once again and make sales...even if it'll be 94 out.

Really hope someone is reading this and will make the trip out to check us out.

Till next time.
