My Thanksgiving this year was very quiet, since I was sick. So, no turkey and dessert for me...I had mine two days later. I spent my Thanksgiving on the couch watching the FIFA world cup, taking medicine every few hours. It wasn't too bad...the soccer made up for it. Anyway, I'm starting to see some decent book sales at Cabin Lake which is awesome and I also have my Christmas on the Hill Book event this weekend! This will be my fourth book event this year...there was a time, especially during COVID, when I wasn't sure if I was able to have an event. So, the fact that I've had 4 is just amazing. I'm also looking to do some book promotion/advertising next month...maybe I'll get some of the Christmas shoppers to purchase my books. If you have any readers that you need a gift for, please check out my website www.authormaggiecasteen.com and check out my books. Another thing that I'm looking into is finally getting my Kathy Hamilton series into audiobooks. Audiobooks is the 'next step' for me as an author, so we'll see what happens, but hopefully it won't be too much longer until I can start adding Audiobooks as a format option.
Until next time....
My event at the Duplin County Events Center was on October 29th and it was very exciting. I was there from 9:30 am until 6 pm. I wasn't sure, at first, how I was going to do, but my table and books went really well. I got the chance to show off my books, pass out some cards, and I got the chance to talk to about 30 people. I received a lot of wonderful comments about my books and I appreciate every one. One of the vendors told me about another event in December, and so I'm working on getting ready for that one. It's called Christmas on the Hill and it is on December 3rd. I'm so excited to have had so many event opportunities. Some days it felt like I would never get a chance to be apart of an event and now I've had 3 so far. Hopefully, this December event will go just as well as my last one.
Until next time...
