What Makes You Attend A Book Signing? Inquiring minds want to know.

So, you read about it on FB, or see it a few hundred times where the bird tweets non-stop, but what about an announcement makes you jump into your car and travel to the book store or to a near-by writers conference to have a book signed by an author you’ve never heard of before?

Inquiring minds want to know. Seriously. I was recently at a writers conference that advertised their book-signing and no one showed up but the authors signing books. I even went as far as walking the streets and telling perfect strangers to stop by, but NO ONE  showed up. Is it me? Am I doing something wrong? As a reader, what would you suggest I do?

As an added incentive for your advice, everyone who leaves a comment will be placed into a drawing for a signed copy of my book, Bridge Over Troubled Waters, currently a finalist in The Carolyn Readers Choice Awards.

  1. If I'm in a store anyway, I will usually stop to talk with any author who's signing books, just 'cause I love meeting authors. But we have quite a lot of book signings locally, and I only set out deliberately to one if I've heard of the author and know I enjoy their books... or if I met them online and can't quite believe someone I "virtually" know is going to be in town.
