I really like interacting with my readers–all readers, really. I love books, whether they’re mine or someone else’s. It really doesn’t matter. Books, to me, are a way of seeing the world through someone else’s eyes. It’s really an honor, in my opinion, to get to see the world from another person’s perspective. Every author puts a piece of themselves in their books. I know I certainly do. From the darkest recesses of my mind, to the hope I have for a prosperous future, it is all in my books if you just read the story and look at the characters. Am I the greatest author that ever lived? No. I’m far from it. I’m just an author who has a story to tell, whether it be my own or a character’s. Do I want to be the greatest that ever lived? No, and here’s why. That’s a lot of responsibility to shoulder. I just want to tell my story and the stories of my characters. That’s why I don’t price my books very high. I write because I enjoy it.
That being said, do you attend book signings? Most indie authors LOVE interacting with readers. If you do attend book signings, make certain you attend a few that I’ll be at. I’d LOVE to see you.
March 20-22, I’ll be in Biloxi, MS helping a fellow indie author friend of mine, Rhea Woodruff, at her table. No, I won’t be signing, but I wouldn’t mind signing anything or handing out a business card if you happen to be there.
May 20-22, I’ll be in Winchester, VA at ‘A Royal Affair’ signing at my own table with my wonderful PA, Shannon White (http://somanybookboyfriendssolittletime.blogspot.com/). We definitely hope to see you there!
September 19-22, I’ll be in Nashville, TN at the ‘Authors at the Opry’ signing! This signing is the highlight of my 2016 year. I am so excited to be at any signing, but this one is something I’ll treasure for a lifetime. I hope you’ll come see me.
Well, enough for now. I have packing to do for my family trip, but make sure you come see me and follow my page on Facebook (www.facebook.com/stephcom8133).
