Book Signings, Part IV

. . . then there's the STAR TREATMENT book signing, the kind of book signing authors dream about.

I was invited, along with thousands of other facebook denizens, to a ticketed event. Here's part of that invitation.

"Free numbered tickets for a place in the booksigning line will be available at 6:30 pm; one ticket per customer in line. Seating for the presentation prior to the signing is limited, and available on a first-come, first-served basis to ticketed customers only."

I picture a red carpet with a throng of avid fans pressing toward the book store door, clutching their cash and demanding to be the first to buy THE BOOK. (Sigh)

Do you have any book signing fantasies? What would be your idea of a smashing book signing event? In the meantime, I'm off to find a roll of tickets to stash away for my "limited, first-come, first-served ticketed customers."

  2. Wouldn't it be amazing to be so popular that you have to sell tickets to your signing? Wow. I will continue to dream.

  4. Having someone else handle ALL the details so all I have to do is show up, be charming and sign books would be my idea of the ideal book signing event.

    Oh...yeah, first I've got to get a book published. Did I forget that part?

  6. Somehow I know all of you will need the information about book signings. You're working at your craft and you're talented. I know. I've visited all of your blogs. Make that VERY talented.

    When you start the book signings, be sure to let me know. I tend to turn up at those events. I understand the need to support writers.

Please say something to me, anything. Well, not anything, but a kind word will do.
