I think I'm through with author book signings and readings at bookstores. The idea sounds great, but the reality is somewhere between depressing and horrifying. I've done my share of both, but would much rather speak to a small group which has actually read my book.
Unless you're famous or infamous, or both, there doesn't seem to be much point. I'll admit it's a thrill to see your book featured multiple times in the front window of Barnes and Noble, but if you are small, independent publishers and authors, I think I'd suggest trying to interest local book clubs, and work out from there. That works best for me.
Any comments or experiences to share?
