My first book signing will be at the Ball State Campus Barnes & Noble bookstore on June 19. I hope to have a good turn out. Several people have told me they are waiting to buy their book at the signing. The signing will be held in the cafe by the food court during student orientation. Thousands of people on campus that week and they all have to eat.
I plan to take posters with the picture of my bookcover; a large poster for display and possible smaller ones to give away. I'll also have bookmarks available and possibly another give-away item or two. I'm planning to set up my laptop to show off my website and book trailer. The bookstore will distribute flyers and I'll have media coverage to announce the event.
I'm not worried at all about talking with the public--I can't wait to do that but wonder if there is anything else I should take with me or be aware of to prepare. I'd love to hear your expert suggestions.
