As I have mentioned before in these pages–no doubt to the accompaniment of wearied sighs from you–it can be difficult for an author to break through. There are so many things to read, and so many ways to read them, and the big publishing houses can pay magnificent fees to promote their wares on Goodreads and Facebook and in bookstores. For the rest of us in the Indy world it’s a bit of a slog.
Having said that, one of the fun things about promoting a book is meeting with readers. It’s fascinating to hear people’s theories about characters and to listen to them talk about why certain things happen–or don’t.
So, if you have a book group somewhere within reasonable driving distance of Milwaukee, you can borrow me for an afternoon or evening to meet with you. Contact me via this website, or through my publicist, Felicia Mineva at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The release of The Audacity of Goats, Book Two in the North of the Tension Line series (available here, and here, and here, and here, or at your favorite bookstore) is imminent, and my calendar is starting to fill up.
Come on, it will be fun!
