Last night(which was the 25th of October, 2007), my local library held their authors day event.
Unfortunately, we were competing against the Boston Red Sox and the World Series. As a result there were less than twenty people at the event. When it was my turn to get up and speak about my books I thought I'd do something different than telling the audience all about me. I explained to them that rather than talking about my books I would like to introduce them to my characters.
At first, I don't think they understood what I was going to do until my characters starting telling them who they were and how they came to be. Since we were limited to the amount of time we had, I could only introduce the characters from the Legacy Series. It went over big. I received a huge applause and people came over to me after and thought it was a marvelous idea, and they were interested in learning more about the characters and the books. I only sold a few copies, but people did take my flyers and then rushed off to get home to see the ballgame. After all this is RedSox Nation. Can't compete against that.
