|Me and AJ.|
I set up my little table at an empty spot next to author AJ Scudiere. I had recognized her name...from everywhere...and I hoped to learn a thing or two. AJ was amazing. Just amazing. Her advice and experience was well worth the five hour trip down. She's got marketing and promotion down to a science, and her operation is a well-oiled machine.
Mine, on the other hand, is akin to one of MacGyver's improptu inventions that includes a paperclip and some lint. Look at my table. I don't even have a damn table cloth.
It was great to meet authors C. Bryan Brown, Marian Allen, K.A. Duvar, and James Percy.
I also gleaned some wisdom from author and publisher, Tony Acree. He's always been like a long-lost
|My author table style is what I call "bare bones."|
Oh wait, I just have ONE book to sell. Aye, there's the rub.
I'm probably only going to go to one other event in 2014, which is St. Louis' biggest science fiction/fantasy convention, Archon. It's in October, so I should have my second book, Shadow Warrior, published by then. So I'll have TWO books to sell.
Baby steps....baby steps...
And hey, I'm going to be featured on The Writing Nut's Spotlight Week March 17-21st!
