Book Signing Tips with Author Angela Joseph

Angela Joseph is promoting her book Women for All Seasons.

Since book signings are a part of the book marketing process, Angela has some tips to help you prompt your book.

Book Signings by Angela Joseph

I have put book signings and other events for Women For All Seasons on hold for the moment while I focus on my novel in progress and freelance writing. My last book signing was at a place where women gather – my daughter’s beauty salon. The event was not publicized as well as I’d hoped, but since it was a Saturday, there was a fair amount of traffic and I ended up selling 8 books and giving one away.

I offer a few tips for a successful book signing:

1.    Location. It doesn’t have to be a bookstore as you can see from the example above. It can be a setting that ties in with your niche market.
2.    Start local. If you start in your hometown, you are more likely to get a good attendance.
3.    Advertise. Goes without saying. Ask your friends to help you spread the word.
4.    Be creative. If your book is a novel, you can dress up like one of your characters. In the photo, I tried to look like a Jewish woman.
5.    Don’t forget the freebies.  Bookmarks, buttons, fridge magnets with your book cover on them, even your laminated book cover, are all inexpensive giveaways. I also included a plate of cookies and water.

Thanks for hosting me on this tour, Karen. I apologize for not responding sooner. I wasn't aware that you were one of my hosts and I simply missed the email. But thanks again for all your help.
