Not many children say, “When I grow up, I want to be a circus barker.”
Next to a skinned knee, there are few things writers enjoy more than publicly trying to get people to take notice of their book. Most of us are hermits by nature—a desk in a lonely part of the house, facing a wall, without clocks to remind us that hours have gone by in which we haven’t spoken a single word (and yet produced thousands).
The fable of Rick Castle happens to very few.
Very few. (Seriously folks. Besides, the New York PD has quit returning my calls.)
I’d have a better chance at climbing Mt. Everest (or any hill these days) than writing a best-seller. Besides, I’m a novice. I’m still learning my craft. My insecurities are enormous! My desire to appear at a book signing—well, I’m working on it.
Don’t get me wrong—I am totally excited that Costco has approved my book! WAHOO!
But not so thrilled to sit at a table while strangers walk by and, rather than notice me, intensely examine the acne cream across the aisle.
But you can make a difference! If you are in the area, come by and ask questions about the book. This will help draw attention from strangers. And I would LOVE to see you! Plus you can enter a drawing to get your name in my next book! (Sorry, I don’t have a car to give away—another fable is that writers are wealthy.)
All locations are Costco and all time slots are 1-4pm. (You could write these on a BIG note and stick it on your fridge with a heart magnet.)
Come one, Come All! Step Right up!
