Book Signing Success

Never having had a novel published (yet) I've had little experience in book signing and none at all when it comes to doing a formal book signing at a bookstore, so I'm hardly one to give advice on the matter.

However, this is something I've been wondering about. How do you go about running a book signing event? How should you go about promoting it? How do you insure it is successful?

This morning I stumbled across a link to a the Backspace website with a brilliant 3 page article full of practical how-to advice on making your book signing a success.

Check it out here.

  1. I've signed my books but I haven't had to organise a signing yet, however I can tell you that it does involve a lot of telephone calls to various bookshops to see whether they've available slots for you. THe venue should do some advertising for you, as well as your publisher, and tweet and blog about it
