I’m speaking Sunday afternoon at a library in Kansas. This is a library that’s been very welcoming and really has done a lot to support me. I’m super grateful for that. This pic is from my first time there. I think I was announcing the winner of the free book when the photo was taken, and everyone was looking at the lucky winner, so crazy envious, I’m sure! ;)
But back to this next visit. By today I’ve got my talk planned out pretty well. I’ve got the books to sell and the decorations for the table. I’ve still got some media work to nail down, but I’m pretty ready to go.
Still I thought it would be neat to give you guys a chance to tell us authors what you would love to see in a book event. If an author you enjoyed was coming to your library, what would you want them to do? What would you want to ask them? Please share! I’d really love to know.
One of the silly things I’m doing on Sunday is giving away either an Amazon gift card or one of my books to whoever has had the highest fine. Sadly I’m a bit notorious for having late fees that equal the cost of a brand new book. :( Yep. Really. (No one tell my husband!) And this is a library that’s got cheap daily fines and only charges for so many days before the fines stop. We absolutely will not talk about my Chicago area library which never stopped daily fines, fines more than double what my current library charges! That was painful.
My highest library fine here in Kansas? Just about fifteen dollars. Isn’t that terrible??? Someone reading, quick! Make me feel better! Who’s had a fine like mine?
Anyway, I would appreciate some prayers on Sunday afternoon. I’m excited about this visit, but the nerves are always there. And do share what you’d love to see from your favorite authors. I’m eager to hear!
