You guys! I think I may actually attend my first ever book signing! How is it possible that I – a voracious reader and fangirl of many, many authors – has never attended a book signing? I have no idea.
Well, for starters, the closest major metro area is more than an hour away so I would really need to be paying attention to when book signings would be happening there. It also happens to be a metro area that does not always get included in some of the major book tours – ie: it’s not New York or Los Angeles.
Thanks to the modern conveniences of social media, I came across a post by Amanda Hocking announcing dates for her book tour after WAKE comes out on Tuesday, Aug. 7. Those dates, times and places are here, if you are interested. Ms. Hocking lives in my home state of Minnesota (woot!) and is starting out her tour here. So several of these places are actually places I can get to.
I’m very excited and hope that, in my book-signing-virgin state, I don’t do anything uncouth and am asked to never attend a book signing ever again.
The description for WAKE – which will apparently be the first in a four-book series – can be found here. I have read her Trylle Trilogy and Hollows Series and enjoyed both so I’m looking forward to WAKE.
And for those of you who do not want to follow the links – check out this cover! Is this not one of the prettiest covers ever?
What book signings have you attended? What advice do you have for a newbie to make the most of the experience?
