Recently, some of my friends got their short stories published in an anthology titled Bitter Sweet (https://www.amazon.com/Bitter-Sweet-Catherine-Jordan/dp/1620067854/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1469848914&sr=8-1&keywords=catherine+jordan). They had two book launches where they read part of their stories and signed the book.
Their experience, coupled with my anticipation for the release of the anthology in which my short story “Damaged Angel” will be published, made me think about book signings and what goes into making one successful.
Below are two blog posts which contain tips on what authors can do in the weeks and months before a book signing to make it successful. I hope you find their advice as helpful as I did!
