Pax Titanus Book Signing: A Quick Recap

Table is set. Ready to go.
Table is set. Ready to go.

So last Sunday I joined over 40 authors at the Locally Grown Words Book Fair, an annual event organized by the infinitely cool, indie bookstore, Bookmark It.

This store is fighting the good fight. All indie authors, all local. Something you don’t see much these days. They are always hosting events and they have been super supportive of yours truly.

An for an author with a small but loyal following, setting up my first local book signing for PAX TITANUS under the emotional safety net of a larger event minimized the nagging fear that I think anyone who had a birthday party when he was 7 and none of the kids showed up because his birthday is during a school break so there was no way to remind anyone about the party because it was 1977 so there’s no texting or instant messaging and you’d have to call everyone to just be sure and nobody did that back then you just showed up if you said you were going to or you called with your apologies and ever since he always worries that if he throws a party that no one will show up because no one actually likes him it’s all just a big put-on.

Whoa.

What just happened?

Anyway. It was a stellar day. Solid Florida December weather. Cool, sunny, and dry. Many old friends, several new friends, and other familiar faces came by to pick up a copy of my crazy little book. I also gave out a bunch of kickass Pax Titanus bookmarks, explained bizarro fiction those new to the genre and I may have set up a reading event or two.

And, if you think I should stop by your town, spit some words, and shuck some books — just let me know. I’m down.

Pouting because the day was over. I AM NOT DUCKFACING SO DON'T EVEN.

Book Signing Event – 8/3 Indie BookFest 2013

Header.5.3

ORLANDO PEEPS!

This Saturday — Join me and a room full of other Indie Authors at the Indie BookFest 2013, located at the lovely Buena Vista Palace.

Open book signing from 1:30-3:30pm. I’ll be signing books and giving away freebies along with my friends in the Orlando Indie Authors group.

Come by and pretend you’re a guest of the hotel. I hear the pool is mighty nice.

Book Signing…SUCCESS.

Last Saturday, I had a book signing event at Docking Bay 94 Comics and Games down in the Boca Raton, FL area. I spent about seven years living in the Boca Bubble and I can tell you from experience that it will warp your priorities. I felt just a slight tinge of justice served as I returned the favor.

We had a solid turnout, and I had the chance to see many old friends, co-conspirators, and excited new disciples. I have also heard a report that one person may have received a speeding ticket trying to make it before the event was over. Unfortunately, the alleged traffic violator did not make it in time…if I can confirm this, I will name a character after her in a future story. It’s the least I can do.

Even though I stand in front of a room and talk for a living, I always feel a bit strange being the center of attention — especially when I plan to be. Fortunately, everyone was so cool that I forgot about how weird I am and it’s nice to have a vacation from that.

The overall response to the book has been encouraging. I’ve heard enough positive remarks to keep moving forward. It could be that my author photo keeps a few trolls out of my life. I do look like I’ll take your lunch money. Remember: if you look dangerous, you don’t have to be dangerous.

In other news:

I have just under a week left in my Goodreads giveaway. I’m giving 10 free, signed copies of Leather to the Corinthians. If you don’t have a copy yet, or need something to prop up a wobbly table, then take a moment to click HERE.

Also, my book ended up…ah ok, I hijacked this Listopia on Goodreads…Best Social and Political Satires. Again, if you are on Goodreads, can you throw me a vote? I’m all the way up to #2. Click HERE to vote.

Lastly, Amazon has added new categories for Kindle, and Leather is currently #68 in Metaphysical and Visionary. I have no idea how this happened, but I dig the Visionary part.

Here’s some pics from the book signing. Thanks to all who came out to support me and my madness. YOU ROCK.
