Because I’m slow, that’s why

In an earlier post I mentioned trying to come up with original ideas to promote author appearances; I’ve now done over 734 thousand of them, and have a new one coming up December 10th. My newest book, as all fourteen of my regular readers know, is Hoosier Hysterical, a humorous look at the history, people, and trivia of Indiana. The signing at the Noble Art Gallery will be the third since Hoosier Hysterical came out, and also the third appearance I’ve put in at Dan Gagen’s gallery in downtown Albion.

What hook could I use to get people to come? The first thing I thought of is to have the cover reveal of my new novel there, and that’s great, but I wanted something more.

Then I realized the bicentennial of Indiana’s official formation is December 11th—just one day after the book signing.

And what inspired me to write the book was the upcoming bicentennial.

Say it with me, now: “Duh.”

So, the Facebook event details are now on my FB writer’s page, along with the hooks. While you’re checking it out, please like my page!

A view from the Noble Art Gallery. Well, actually a view from the middle of the street. Boy, were the other drivers mad.
