Evite your friends to your book event!
Quick tip for publicizing your book signing. I usually tell authors to email and mail their whole database of family, friends, and co-workers to promote a hometown book signing appearance. The Elementary Common Sense of Thomas Paine author Mark Wilensky is working hard to publicize his Tattered Cover book signing on April 29. He sent an Evite to his contacts inviting them to the event. Sounds so simple that I’m surprised I never thought of it before. He can keep track of Yes, Nos, and Maybes, people can leave him comments on the Evite webpage for his event, and he can get a sense of how many people will attend. What a fun way to invite everyone to your book signing party!
