How to prepare for a successful book signing?

What does your signature look like?

Have you practiced signing books? Practiced your autograph?

Remember Practice makes perfect.

Don't practice until you get it right... Unknown at Jean's Writing

I recently read a good article by Judith Briles on how to prepare for a book signing/author event.

Here’s what I learned from Ms. Briles about preparing for that big event.

Writing with Jargon

J= Jargon

  • Speech or writing having unusual or pretentious vocabulary, convoluted phrasing, and vague meaning.
  • Slang or Lingo
  • Language used by a group, profession, or culture, not words and phrases are not understood or used by other people.

Not everyone understands tech-talk.

Make sure your writing speaks to a broad audience, not a select few. Believe it or not, there are still a few people who do not use computers.

A ransom note filled the screen. The sender wanted five-thousand dollars. Her computer was under attack. Rachel hit delete and the next email popped up repeating the threat.

What the hell? With each click, the threat reappeared. She couldn’t close her email. The computer now belonged to someone else.

Read for Free, well sort of…

I love to get something free and although Kindle Unlimited is $9.99 monthly the number of books borrowed makes the membership a bargain.

I’ve read a lot of wonderful books by Indie and established writers. Of course, also a few not so wonderful but I’m not going to go there. When I download one not to my taste, I just return the book after a few pages. No harm no foul.

Kindle Unlimited is beneficial to readers and writers. Molly Greene, author and blogger gives a great break down on Kindle Unlimited payouts. Although she contends it’s not a lot of dough, I’m impressed and glad to know I’m contributing to the success of writers when I read for free. You can read her blog post here.

I also wanted to share some great reads I’ve found through Kindle Unlimited.

And I rated with 5 stars5gold-star3

A Writer

I’M A WRITER

Yes, I talk to myself.

Each day I start with a pep talk, reminding myself that I am a writer, not an aspiring (wannabe) writer, but a writer.SOURCE

However, truth be told, on certain days my conviction falters especially (popped up without warning-cliche followed by damn adverb) after receiving a rejection.

That’s when the muttering start, when my confidence wavers; so, I repeat my mantra over and over until the stain of negativity fades.

Good, bad, win or lose I keep writing because I am a writer.
