A few words about our book signing for Baker & Taylor at PLA last week.
First of all, a big thank you to our friend Liz who took some time off work to help us collect money.
The publicity that B&T provided (both physical and electronic mailers) sent a lot of people to both our booth and the signing itself. We were fortunate to have a booth, because not everyone could make the signing times, but it's pretty clear we would have done pretty well just to show up at the signing.
Which leaves us with somewhat of a quandry. Rather than fork up the money for booths - which is large - and the time spent at the booth - also large - should we just focus on signings? They would probably attract most of our existing fans, but everyone walks by booths, and we make quite a few converts right there. So I guess for now we'll stay the booth course. To that end I just booked my tickets to ALA Orlando and bought us a booth right in the heart of the Graphic Novel Pavillion. Gene can't make it but I'll be there with our friend Derek who will once again be helping out.
