Last night I took part in the City of Mesa’s 2nd Friday Steampunk Street III. Myself and fellow author Michael Bradley set up a table for our latest novels right on Main Street. We met a lot of interesting people and I think found some new fans. I even sold some books, and that is always a good thing, right. Even better than that, I managed to talk to several readers looking for something new and I could tell their interest in my works was genuine. That makes it all worthwhile. You can talk about six figure advances and million sellers but when you connect with a reader on a personal level it makes all the rest seem rather small. Now mind you I am not one to turn down a six figure advance should one come, but it is so good to get out there and have your work validated by someone who says nothing more that, “you know, I would like to read that.” A big thank you to everyone who stopped by the table, the City of Mesa and Evermore Nevermore for a great night.
