We all know how wonderful it is, if you’re published, to receive that monthly stipend from all the online retailers, from Amazon to Kobo and beyond. Any money, from $2 to $2000, means someone has bought your book, and that’s a good thing!
Some of our members also do a lot of hand-sales. While it’s time consuming, it’s a great way to build your following, fans, and create rapport with book buyers. Plus, you get to put faces on other authors at the events and see what resonates about your book with buyers. Maybe they just are drawn to the cover. Maybe they like the genre alone and that compels them to purchase your book. Or maybe they just fall a little in love with you, the author, and just *have* to have your novel now that they’ve met you.
WWW member Penny Hamilton sent in a bit of information on her upcoming events and hand-sales opportunities, which are shared below as another example of both how and where you might find a chance to connect with readers:
Author Penny Hamilton will be hosting a book table on Saturday, May 12, from 8-11am at the annual Mountain Parks Electric Co-operative breakfast meeting in Granby, CO. She will also be greeting book buyers at Granby City Market for a Western Kick-Off to Summer event.
