As I’ve been telling you recently, I’m going to my first book fair. Now it’s here! Ready or not (mostly not, but I have the books), it’s this Saturday, the 30th of April 2016 at Llandeilo. I’m an interloper (most writers have a close connection with Wales, in my case I like Wales, I’ve spent some time there and I hope to spend more in the future and… I’ll try and keep quiet) but that’s never stopped me before. Apart from books, wonderful writers who will be happy to sign, chat, read, give a few talks…, we have a writing competition for children, heavenly sweets and much, much more.
I’m very excited, not only because of the opportunity to meet readers, but also because I’ll meet some of the writers I only know through their books and their blogs. Yes!
Christoph Fischer, a great writer, fabulous supported of other writers and a magician at organising things, is the brains behind this fair, and he’s written such a fabulous post (including pictures of newspaper articles and everything else) that I didn’t dare to try and compete. Here, go and visit his fabulous blog to read his post, and wander around there, as there is plenty of amazing content.
I hope to have feedback for you soon, but in the meantime, I’d be grateful for any tips, suggestions and encouragement from authors and readers. I have a more specific question for authors and/or readers about pricing. I have an idea running around in my head, but not having had any experience selling paperbacks directly, how do you decide the price?
I thought I’d share my new card with you… Thanks to Lourdes Vidal who’s risen up to the challenge.
Thanks to Christoph Fischer for organising the fair, to Lourdes for her design, and to all of you for reading, liking , sharing, commenting… And if you’re anywhere near Llandeilo, do come by!
