Hi, all! A quick note to give you the update on the little stinker of a book. We checked out the proof earlier this week and had a few things to tweak. I am hopeful it will be uploaded to the printer in good time--perhaps before the weekend.
Last week I spent many days enjoying myself at the Pagan Unity Festival in middle Tennessee. I talked about the little book and handed out my hand-made handouts--colorful tracings of my hand with the book info in the palm.
It's one of my little jokes.
Before I left for the festival, I created some fat press packets to deliver to a couple of local bookstores. They contain a press release, some bio information, a photo, reviews/blurbs of the book and ordering information, a Moon Pie--all tucked into a pretty green folder.
They are great fun to make. I'll create a half-dozen more and send them to stores out of the area.
I'm starting to arrange library talks--one so far. I hope they'll host me at the Enka-Candler branch since that's where I grew up. And at the West Asheville branch--where I spent most every Saturday morning.
We designed the shipping label for the books that are being mailed out and I'll start prepping those tomorrow. I pre-sold several more copies at the festival and need to make a few more of these super-cool bookmarks.
In other words--so far, so good.
