It was a wonderful turn out for the first local author showcase and book fair put on by New Tecumseh Public Library. On November 19th we set up our table at the Tottenham Community Centre along with twenty two other local authors. The venue allowed us to speak with interested readers who had made their way out that Saturday afternoon.
Besides sharing postcards and some banter, I had asked readers to sign up for the free book contest. There was a lot of enthusiasm and the contest was received very well by the people who attended. So much so that it’s been extended to December 20th, just in time for Christmas.
While we wait for outfoxed to be released, I will be sharing more of my experiences about the book on Peter’s Perspective. Sign up, and the newsletter, with great stuff, will arrive directly to your inbox. By participating in the contest you have the chance to win a free Advance Reader Copy. The winner could be reading outfoxed before everyone else on the Christmas Holidays. Runners-up can win a free chapter that should wet their appetite for the rest of the book. Don’t be left out. Sign up now or place your pre-order with me at email@example.com
The First NTPL Book Fair was sponsored by the New Tecumseh Public Library and directed by Kim Burgess, their Adult Services Program Coordinator and assistant Julie Fox-Snively.
The local authors got busy and set up tables and books for an informative and busy afternoon. As an added bonus we had an opportunity to get to the microphone and speak about our books.
Also present were many members of the Wordsmiths, a group of like-minded authors who meet twice a month to share their stories and poetry. Diane Bator, author of many books and the Ontario Regional Director for Crime Writers of Canada came by for a few words. Our own JC Kavanagh who just published her latest novel for young adults was set up next to me and sold a few books.
As the fair came to a conclusion it was obvious to me and others that it was a rather intriguing debut. On my way out Kim Burgess told me she was very pleased with the turnout and plans to hold the book fair again next year. Perhaps it would be wise to mark your calendar as next year could be an even more exciting Book Fair!
