Signing session in Haverfordwest
Signing sessions can be busy or they can be dead. It all depends on how much effort the bookshop puts into press advertising, posters in the window, sandwich boards outside on the pavement, and word of mouth promotion by shop staff to customers in advance of the event. It helps, too, if the signing event is itself in the shop window, so that people can see from the street that there is something interesting going on within......... and a cold, bright day is an advantage, too.
It helps if the author involved is reasonably well-known locally -- even if not a nationwide "big name."
Grateful thanks to Joanna Marvelly for these pics of the busy signing session and "meet the author" morning at Victoria Bookshop in Haverfordwest, about a week ago. Shifted a lot of books, and had a very pleasant time talking to faithful followers of the Angel Mountain saga. And the coffee was good too.
