I had a signing event at Warwick’s Bookstore in La Jolla on Sunday, July 10 from 12 noon to 2 pm. It went rather well, had a lot of interest and sold many books. I gave away 4 signed prints of the Four Seasons as a bonus to purchasers of my book. I need more marketing. Have to contact many bookstores but also painting at the same time, my time is limited. Marketing a book is a full time job. I have all the ideas but no time. Need an assistant badly but she has to be better than me and know more than me and FEEL like me. Any candidates?
One of the interesting features of my novel is that it is illustrated by me. I have put 26 images of my etchings inside, in front of each chapter. They are all very sensual etchings that have something to do with the chapter. The hard bound copy of the book can be a good coffee table book, as people would look at the images and daydream.
I am very grateful to all my friends who have encouraged me in my ventures and some of them have actually LIVED the novel. I am perpetually living it myself.
I have to start writing my second book, it is all in my head but with all that I have to do, it is sitting on the back burner.
Here is one of my etchings.
