|Kind of on the blurry side, huh?|
Yeah, pretty bad, huh? I would have taken pictures of all the readers who stopped by to take a look at my books, but there weren’t any (although one person did sign up for my newsletter). Not one person picked up a book and read the blurb, but then most of the people who walked past weren’t even romance readers. I know this because I asked.
Kind of a bummer.
But I had a good time anyway. And I surprised myself. I was able to actually talk to some people and not be nervous. Even during the panel.
I mean, who am I???
Of course, only 5 people attended the panel (way more than I expected, though), and there were 4 of us on the panel, so there wasn’t a lot to be nervous about.
Would I do another Ohio Expo? Probably not. Of the few people who came, they weren’t my audience. I’m glad I went though. It taught me something: I’m better at sticking with those events specifically aimed at romance readers (especially if I have to pay for a table).
Hmmm… Will I see more romance readers at Rust City Book Con (my next event, Aug 11-14 in
, which has multiple genres)? I
can only hope. Troy,
Sunday’s celebration turned out wonderful. Food was yummy and the company even better. I even have leftovers! Yay!
So… Has this heat gotten to you yet? It was too hot & humid on Friday for me to walk to the fitness center (although I managed to get my 10K steps in because I spent the day doing the laundry and cleaning the house). Not so sure I want to walk outside this morning, either. Boy, I knew winter would stop me, but summer? It’s amazing how much energy the heat will take from you. Ugh.
Have a great Monday and try to stay cool!
