On Saturday, August 6, 2022, I participated in the 9th annual
“Independent Author’s Book Experience at the Public Library in Linden, NJ.
I'm the last seated person on the right.
Author Renaee Perrier-Smith did a wonderful job of organizing this event. I was really impressed by the number of authors who were there to present their books!
It’s a shame that the temperatures were so hot with high humidity! But there was a sizable turnout and I got to share my picture book to some really wonderful youngsters.
It was a very positive experience. I made some friends and did a little networking. I may do it again next years.
My New Book!
Two weeks ago I self published my second picture book!
I’m so excited! Since August 1st I’ve sold eight copies of
When You Live in the Woods and
two copies of My Navesink, the picture book
I self published in 2020.
I’ve received two reviews:
M.K. wrote “I absolutely love your book. It's *even* more beautiful than I expected. “
T.S. wrote “I love this book! I read it aloud to my family and we so enjoyed every page, every poem.”
Although both books are filled with illustrations that I painted myself and the words are all mine as well, I do not consider them children’s books.
I call them “Beautiful Books.”
Does that make me shallow? (Lol!)
I have consigned my book My Navesink to a local high end farmer’s market in June and I’ve sold more than 10 copies through them.
It’s not easy being my own marketer! Ask any creative! It’s hard to do all that left brained stuff when you live very comfortable in your right brain.
But I have faith. I’ll have what I need when I need it. No more sweating the left brain stuff.
Musings of a confessed eccentric.
