This weekend is what I am calling my mini book tour. I’m totally cool with a mini tour. Mini is “in” right now. The mini ipad, mini-cupcakes, the mini chicken sandwich at Tim Hortons, the mini-cheeseburger – just to name a few. Mini is the new big.
Someday in my dreams, I would love to do a big gigantic book tour. That’s like the ultimate day dream that I can get lost in for a good 1/2 hour. But dreams come in steps sometimes. So this weekend, I am super excited for my 3 bookings which make up my first mini tour.
My first step.
A morning at a local school reading to children (who are mini-sized), then a Friday night book signing at a Chapter’s in Kitchener, then a Saturday jaunt to Mississauga for an afternoon signing. I mean, for little old me, with my little book – that is pretty exciting. In fact, it’s actually pretty big to me in all it’s mini-ness!
I’m a little nervous (what else is new). My last book signing went really well – I had some great local support. But, at some point I am going to run out of family and friends (they can only buy so many books) so I gotta learn to work the crowds, pull them in – all that extroverted stuff that I am not REALLY that great at. BUT, I know it must be done.
So, I’ll put on my sassy pants and be ready to face the world. Mini book tour – here I come!
