Tomorrow (Saturday, May 21) marks the start of my so-called Outdoor Bookselling Season. I’ll be at the Hopkins Mainstreet Day Arts & Craft Fair from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm selling all my books. It’s a fun event that brings thousands of people to downtown Hopkins for a relaxing browse up and down Main Street to find whatever type of handmade item you want for yourself or for a gift.
I’ve also got outdoor events coming up in Owatonna, Lake Crystal, Elysian, and Hopkins again. But I’ll also be at plenty of indoor book festivals and events in other areas too.
- SATURDAY, MAY 21, 9 am – 4 pm. Mainstreet Day, downtown Hopkins MN. My booth is between 10th and 11th Aves.
- THURSDAY, JUNE 2, 5:00 pm- 8:00 pm. Downtown Thursdays, North Cedar Ave, Owatonna MN
- WEDNESDAY, JUNE 15, 7:00 am. Earlybird Rotary Club, Owatonna MN. (Members only)
- SATURDAY, JUNE 18, 9:00 am- 4:00 pm. Market in the Park, Lake Crystal MN. Organized by Willie’s Roadside Shop.
Thanks for the Reviews
I appreciate those of you who have posted online reviews of my books, especially reviews of Dangerous Straits.
Each one helps my “author credibility” no matter if you loved the book or hated it. But I am blown away that the huge majority of readers enjoy my books. I wouldn’t keep writing them if you, the readers, told me they were terrible. So thanks for the support. And please consider posting an online review of one or all of my books if you haven’t already. It’s quick and easy to do. But I also appreciate good old word-of-mouth advertising. I hear from lots of folks who tell all their friends and family about my books too. That’s still the number one way authors sell books these days, despite all the fancy internet ads and different social media sites and book review sites.
