Book Signing - A Joyous Event For Writers And Readers

Mar 4, 2008
Writing is a talent that exists within. It flows out of you, like a never-ending stream of valuable work. It is not easy for just anyone and everyone to become a writer. You must have a good command of the language and creative expression. Your writing needs to have magic that will create an interest in people and glue them to reading. Usually, when a writer has published his book, he then gets organized for book signing. It could be a very successful and high profile event if planned in an organized and efficient manner. Most authors use bookstores, as they are appropriate locations, where you can get readers to take notice of your book. It also works as a kind of self-promotion.

Normally, it is free. The store will not pay you nor do you have to pay them, but it allows you to have that time of display to put your book in the limelight. Some authors also opt for other venues like cafes, which may have help with the book promotion or if the book is about a particular subject, for example, if a book is on music, they will opt for a music store. If it is on wine, then it will be the wine bar; if gardening then may be someone's beautiful garden; and if it is a book on coffee, then a coffee shop would be the place as mentioned above. Writers are prone to feel proud at this moment, with all the attention they receive. Since this is also a very interactive session time, writers need to be friendly and approachable. They must make an effort to build a relationship with the public.

As usual, after book signing sessions, they have always been a considerable rise in sales. How they deal with the readers on a personal level is very important and also, by giving readers ample information on the matter and content of the book. A good briefing is very as well important. This one to one exchange convinces readers to buy a copy of the book. It is also a time to get to know more about your favorite author and his books, without feeling compelled in any way to buy it. With the presentation offered by the author, you can be completely convinced before you make a decision.

For others, it is a good time to get acquainted with the writer. Even a simple handshake could get them all excited. This time of interaction brings them one step closer to the writer. Some are hardcore fans and this time is simply exhilarating for them. Their intimate time with their writer is simply an unforgettable moment. Book signing for others, be it the writer or the readers and fans, are great moments to remember, even while not considering the great refreshments that are sometimes offered. Readers get to know a lot about their favorite writers, his personal life, besides other things, which they would not get elsewhere. The truth is, writers themselves prove book signing is simply an exhilarating and unforgettable event for everyone present.
