Live from a Waterstones...
« on: August 25, 2011, 05:38:44 PM »

A little while ago the local writers' group I belong to put out an anthology of writing.  As part of the promotional thing I managed to get the Chairperson in contact with a local Waterstones manager, and eventually things got booked and we were on for a reading.

However, the turnout was not good from the public, and apart from the local press, I was wondering where else we could have advertised such an event.

It wasn't helped by the fact that three doors down from the shop were a bunch of musical chuggers doing overly loud Karaoke (which I am sure is Japanese for Tone Deaf Drunk With Microphone) and I feel we could have shifted a few more copies than we did with a little more planning.  So, suggestions welcome!

As far as I can tell, there's a large element of chance involved in the matter of turn-out at a signing or a reading.  The more of them one has, the more likely that one or more will turn out to be "successful." (Quotation marks needed: if nobody at all shows up, it wasn't a success--but wait 'til next time! If at least one does, remember that success is a relative thing.)

Books by Byron and Kay McAllister can most easily be obtained as e-books or in print from the publisher at http://www.writewordsinc.com/ For "Undercover Nudist," the print version is an improved version of the ebook version. The others are the same in both formats.
