Don't see your town listed above for a book signing? That doesn't mean I've forgotten about you! As the author of a new book, I receive many kinds of support from my publisher. However, that does not include book tour or travel. This isn't unusual; it's completely normal for most new authors.
If I haven't yet made plans to do a book event near you, it’s because I don't yet have the travel expenses, lodging, signing location, or advertising costs to cover one. Depending on the time of year, my schedule may also be full with other business, which affects my ability to travel or creatively workaround this lack of resources.
If you are experienced at bringing authors to your town, or you know someone who is, I'd love to talk with you about it! My dream is to do a signing in every city I have readers! You can email me at [email protected].
However, if that's not possible, you can still support me as a new author by buying my book, posting about it on social media, and writing a positive review on popular bookselling sites. This will help me get more interest in my book and may even help with getting a second book published.
Thank you so much for your interest in my book and in a signing. I put my all my heart and soul into it, and it means the world to me that you care enough to want to experience In Intimate Detail, in-person, with me.
