Remember Tupperware Parties???

All the rage now are virtual book tours or blog tours which all promise a big increase in sales.

Trouble is, they get your name out there, but don’t sell books. People buy books and apparently they like to buy them from actual people.

 

A friend hosted the First Official Neighborhood Book Launch Party for my latest book, Crossing the Moss Line, and we sold 40 books.  Amazing and great fun!!!

 

So, I’ve decided to go really old school. I’m working to set up monthly Tupperware Parties without the Tupperware. Same principle, new product.  For each of these Neighborhood Book Launch Parties, the host supplies the people and light refreshments, I supply everything else: custom-designed email invitations, wine, decorations, prizes, cups, plates, napkins, a photo display and of course BOOKS.  I’ll also be meeting with book clubs whenever I’m invited.

 

So far, I’ve lined up a meeting with one of my favorite book clubs, Wine, Women and Words and a wine-tasting, book-signing, photo-viewing event with pH Wine Merchants. This one is free and open to the public, so come join us October 29, from 2P:00 – 4:P00 at pH Wine Merchants.  www.phwinemerchants.com 

 

Negotiations are on-going for an event in December and April. Stay tuned for more information. And if you’d like to host an event, by all means, let me know.
