Signing Books is Fun

Today I'm doing my last book signing of the year. Considering this is the 11th book signing this month, I'm kind of relieved to get a break. My kids are, too. They want me home for a while. But I have to say, I've had a lot of fun.

I've always been a really introverted person, and I thought book signings were going to be a challenge because of it. But, as I write and attend author conferences, I grow, so by the time I reached this critical step in the writing process--book promotion--it's become something I look forward to rather than dread.

I've said it before--the days of the reclusive author who sits in a cabin and pens out a bestseller without every being viewed in public are over. If we want our book to do well, we need to do our part to promote it. But, I think we are all up to the task.

Go get 'em. :)

Wow that is wonderful. I haven't gotten to do a signing yet. It looks like living in Utah is a big plus in the LDS Publishing world.

My busiest week had 4 signings. And it was exhausting. Then it tapered down from there. I only have one signing this week and that's already done. So I get to relax and enjoy the rest of the!

Nice job getting it done early, Cheri. I instead chose to have one big party and then take the holidays off. Jan/Feb will be big months for me!
