For one week only, pick up Perfect Chemistry for only 99 cents! Buy now from Amazon!

When it comes to sexy geeks, Leo Martinez and Devlin Hawke are as hot as they get. But falling for the wrong guy has always been Sidney Chase’s forte. She’s not about to submit to her inner bad girl by giving in to her secret fantasies about her sex-on-a-stick bosses. When she’s accidentally exposed to the supercharged aphrodisiac in their lab, Sidney tosses aside her inhibitions and unknowingly provides her bosses with an eye-popping display of self lovin’ courtesy of the office security cameras.

Despite their mutual craving for Sidney, Leo and Devlin made a pact long ago to keep her off limits. The last thing they’d wanted was to scare off their best PA by overwhelming her with their kinky tendencies. Witnessing the arousing effects of their aphrodisiac elixir on Sidney changes everything. Not only is she the answer they’ve been looking for in regards to fine-tuning their formula, she’s the perfect woman for them. And with a little help from one helluva sinful science experiment, they’ll prove that love is far more potent than anything manufactured in a bottle.

Warning: This red hot office romance contains 3 parts sizzling m/f/m menage, 2 parts sexy and sweet geeks, one part wicked bondage and sex toys, and a whole lot of combustible chemistry. Safety glasses required.

 Suggestions for Book Signing and Other Events

I have set up a number of my own book signing and other events and have the following suggestions for other authors. Most of my events occur outside, so some of these suggestions may not be appropriate for all venues. 

 

l. Buy brightly colored balloons to display outside the event. These create movement and draws attention to the event. 

2. I usually have a paper craft available for people to do when I hold an event. These are something simple that might appeal to all ages, especially children. 

3. Don’t rely on the venue to do all the publicity. It is important for the author to do some of their own. Your own news releases, flyers, emails and other forms of publicity will help get the word out about the event. People sometimes need to see the publicity in several places for them to remember.

4. Have a raffle. People like to turn out at events if they see that they might win a prize. I usually give away one of my children’s books to be given away by the venue the next day, so that they will return at least once to the store. 

5. Have the event in a location where there is likely to be a captive audience, preferable locations that are popular with local residents. I like locations where there are lots of people strolling by . At some locations, I might have a small grouping of chairs for readings and at others there may not be room.

6. Food is important. For our children’s book event at Whiz Kids Toy Store, we had popcorn, appealing to kids and adults alike.  Food helps to create a festive atmosphere. Even if I am on the street, I have a bowl of candy or cookies.

7. Have an inviting display. With my own events, I usually have stuffed animals on my table, my books in a display rack, a bright table cloth and colorful signs and banners. I like to engage people in conversation as much as possible.  Include brochures, business cards, bookmarks, newsletter copies and a clipboard to gather email addresses on your table. 

8. If on the street, remain standing and talk to people. Don’t sit at the table and look bored. Be lively and engage potential buyers in conversation.

 

Please share your suggestions about what works or doesn’t work at your events. Thank you, Beryl

Article, Interview and Much More About Kid Lit

What issues should an author consider in working with a traditional publisher vs. self-publishing? How important is it to work with an editor? What should you consider when choosing a cover or fonts for your children’s book? What are some of the other issues that may arise if you also illustrate your own stories?  How important is it for parents to find time in their busy day to read to their children? 


To see my answers to these and other questions, drop by Earl Robert’s website at http://countryessays.com/booksahead/?p=479. Read his article as he weaves together a discussion of many of the issues we all face when writing children’s books along with information about my background, writing process and publishing experiences. Earl combines his article with a video and description of my latest picture books, including my newly published book, Clowning Around. He also provides the URLs where my books may be purchased. 


Earl and I have exchanged comments from time to time over the past year on Linkedin. I have always found his comments insightful. A true professional, he is generous with his expertise. I am delighted to have this spot on his website.
