Author Event and Book Signing! HELP!

You know why I write? Because it allows me to be invisible . . . somewhat.

I can tell these elaborate whoppers in literary form and hide behind the pages. And people like to be told tall tales – who’d thunk it? Of course, once the story is out (and you inadvertently gain some hard-core fans) you realize you DO have to crawl out of your shell and meet your readers – IN PERSON. Gulp.

Don’t get me wrong – I LOVE TALKING with my readers, though almost always via Facetime, Twitter, or Facebook. My fans are the reason I write, period. They are the fuel that powers my determination!! God, I LOVE my readers! They bring Eila and her crew roaring to life, especially when they argue who is hotter – Raef or Kian?

On the downside, I hate public speaking. I’ve gotten better, thank goodness, but it makes me DAMN NERVOUS. I blame my mother for this knee-jerk reaction and stage-fright hell.

But this is EILA!!! And damn it, I haven’t slaved for her and her crew just to wimp-out now. So, yes, I have author events coming up. And if you are a library or bookstore from another state other than Massachusetts, I will try to link with you somehow – possibly via Skype.

Or . . . maybe I’ll trip on a pot of gold, twist my ankle, and the Leprechaun will want to avoid a lawsuit so he will dish over the dough. Then I can come in person! I do have standing requests from other states, so they get first dibs if I ever become loaded enough to get there.

Anyway, I hope to see you at the Sandwich Library :)

  1. Arrggghhh! I wish I could go! But I don’t have enough money to drive to MA!
    Just take a deep breath, Kate, you’ll do great. Sometimes when I’m before a bunch of people, I pretend I’m someone else (someone who’s SUPER confident).
