REMNDER: Mystery Writers this Saturday, August 1, 2015, 9:30am

Harry Hall:

Make Your Book Signing a Wow!

We’ve all attended book signings that were held in quasi-sterile environments amidst quiet conversation, where you stood around for a few minutes, then after some low-key congratulations, and a quick book purchase, left unimpressed.

Yours can be different. You can have your friends, family and acquaintances fill a room, stand in line to purchase your book and still have a good time.

Book signings are a perfect venue for authors to highlight their work and showcase their talents.
But too many fail to capitalize.

At our August meeting, nationally-recognized author Harry Hall will present, “Make Your book Signing a Wow!” in which he will show us how to conduct successful book signings, from publicity to venue selection.

Harry has written two books, most recently, The Pedestriennes, America’s Forgotten Superstars, the first book ever written on the professional endurance walkers whose on and off the track exploits dazzled America in the latter 19thcentury. It has won a Mayborn and Independent Publisher’s (IPPY) Award.

Additionally, for the past 20 years, Harry has taught public speaking at the University of Dallas and SMU. He frequently presents at writers conferences.

Harry lives in Grand Prairie, Texas with his wife Susie and son Zane.
