My guest post about book signings and how to be horribly underprepared was published today on The Story Reading Ape’s blog. Thank you so much for your ongoing support, Chris! What would I do without you?
When I was happily posting about my first book signing, a couple of weeks back, I was looking so forward to what is going to happen that I was completely unprepared. I mean, what exactly would happen? I hoped for people dropping by at my table, loving the book, buying it and I’d sign it. – Wonderful me.
Normally I am a very cautious person, and I love to go somewhere, no matter where, and be really prepared. That day I wasn’t. I didn’t have more than only a few days to get ready for that book signing, and I completely slept the preparation away. There were many other things going on as well, but that isn’t a decent excuse to be as sloppy as I was.

- Some Pen
- Tiny wing charms as giveaways

Great advice and recommendations for those of us who have not actually done a book signing. Thanks so much for sharing your experience and best of luck with the next one. I might recommend VIstaPrint for a table banner or vertical banner. I’ve used them for a lot of things. Great post and thanks again for all that you’ve shared with us.

Thank you so much for dropping in and leaving your comment. It was my pleasure and I’m happy to hear that my experience helps someone else. Vistaprint indeed is great. I used it before. I still need to work on a few things, then I’ll get back to that.
I hope you’re going to have a great book signing too!
