Mike Owens was interviewed on the on the Doug Dahlgren Show on
Friday October 25, 2019
14 Authors represented Scribblers at the Decatur Book Festival held on Saturday August 31st, and Sunday September 1st.
The weather was beautiful, and as a group we sold 108 books. Three authors made money with Portia Wayne being our big seller with her "Dinosaurs in Decatur" being the top seller. This was followed closely by Mike Owens with his " I Hate Vegetables" poetry book taking second place.. Of the 14 authors, only one had no sales, everyone else had sales. We will be reviewing the show at each of the upcoming meetings. We will be reviewing improvements that can/should be made for next years show. All four of our chapters were represented at the show.
Book signing season is fast approaching!
Mike and Leda Owens, two of the Norcross members, have a book signing this Friday at the Southern Pen Bookshop in Monroe. If you can, stop out to support them.
I have a book signing at the same location on Saturday November 17th! Again, if you are in the area, please stop on by.
Finally, we will have the Scribblers Book Sign at NewSong Church on Saturday December 1, 2018 in Monroe.
I have attached to this e-mail the copy of the advertisements that have been run for the various book signings and meetings. I have circled each of the advertisements that have appeared in all of the November Hometown News magazines. Much thanks to our "resources" who have helped defray the cost of the advertisements.
I have also attached an invitation sheet that Luanne made for the event. Please begin circulating this to all of your "sphere of influence" folks. If each of us can reach 100 - 200 friends, family, church members etc, and if even a small % show up, it will be a real success.
A good part of our meeting on the 15th will be spent preparing our marketing plan for our book signing event.
Also, I will give a report on the work I am doing with RebellBooks - Rodney Bell's group, marketing my books.
Please let me know if you are able to attend the meeting. I need to advise the restaurant again of the number of seats to set up for us.
