It’s been a fun journey so far. I’ve loved the premise, the characters, and the setting from the start. The cover caught me off guard. It’s different than I envisioned it. But it appeals to something deep inside me. A few days ago I received my first audio books in the mail and was surprised to see that the discs have different graphics than the print version. But I love that cover too, which is fantastic, because this is a very visual book for me. Maybe that’s because it’s set in the Black Hills region of South Dakota which is a place that speaks to my soul. Or maybe it’s because it has a lot of elements that hearken back to my childhood. But whatever the reason, I found myself gathering a lot of pictures for this book (most of which I had the opportunity to take myself).
So I thought I would share a few.
A pair of my brother’s sheep.
The view from brother’s mailbox.
Colt Dickenson as I see him.(aka my son)
A band of wild horses I happened upon the the Teddy Roosevelt Park.
For the first time in several years I’ll be doing some book signings for this novel. The first will take place in my local saddle shop. This is an entirely new venue for me and I’m trying to think of what will appeal to readers. So my question to you is this: Have you ever seen an author at a book signing? Did he/she look as lonely and pathetic as most of us do during these events? Or was it one of those rare best-selling, readers-around-the-block kind of signings? And either way, did you buy a book? If so, what convinced you to do so? If not, shed a little light on the situation and tell this lonely, pathetic author why?
