Local Author Enjoys the Good Life

My Table
Originally uploaded by ororomunro.

This was taken at the Good Life Author's Book Fair on Aug 19th at the Phoenix Airport Hilton, sponsored by the AZ Good Life News. It was an all day event of book authors, food, raffles, author presentations...and very little foot traffic. I'm not in the picture because I was taking it. I forgot to have someone come by and take one while I was sitting there. My bad.

It was a learning experience:

~ The admission fee of $10 I think was a deterrent to the public. They probably charged that much to make the money back from the all day buffet they provided. If the event had been free or less than $10, I think we would've had better foot traffic. I sold two books and a purse candy keychain.

~ My first public speaking gig. I was a tad nervous, even with only 8 people in the room. I have a tendency to talk fast, so my time went pretty quick. At the end, I decided to read an excerpt from "Dance Jam Productions". Despite the fact that I was shaking afterwards, I was assured that I had done a good job.

Made some contacts and met a formal troublemaker turned Air Force recruit. Overall, it was a great experience. It's their first time putting on an event like this and they accepted our feedback like a pro. They can learn from this too and do better next time.

You can see the rest of the pictures HERE.
