There’s one thing I have to admit, I always forget to take a picture at my events. This month, I had two. One, of which I am very proud, was a book-signing event I coordinated myself on March 16, 2023. Finally, I took the initiative and planned and executed a marketing plan than resulted in book sales. It was a success. I sold more books at this event than I ever did before, including the book fair.
It took a bit of planning. After I made sure the activity room was free, I had my marketing team create a flyer, the beauty you see above. Next, I made a list of what I needed. In 2021, I gave a presentation about my book to the local Rotary Club. It was a power point presentation. There were no screens or projectors available, so I had to improvise. I put the pictures of the historical figures I had on a thumb drive and took it to a local facility where I could have the pictures enlarged and put them on an easel. I mounted the pictures by using a felt-like material to make the prints sturdy enough to set on the easel. I had to replace the first easel with a table-top variety that worked perfectly. My husband exhibited the pictures one by one as I mentioned a few of the historical figures which appeared in my book. I wish I had a picture of him busy at this task.
