How would you like to set at a table with two or three local authors and ask questions, drink coffee, and/or just chat and meet other readers.
On 9/11/14 I tested that idea at the coffee shop at the Evansville, Indiana Barnes & Noble. The test was a success.
People trickled into the coffee shop and hesitated to come to my table because someone was already talking to me. When I invited them to join the discussion they seemed surprised by the idea, but had a great time meeting and sharing stories with each other. Three other local writer friends of mine showed up and the discussion with readers grew…and I was worried that no one would show up.
In the next few weeks (mid to late October) I will announce a date and time for another such event that I am calling “Impromptu Writer’s Cafe: Coffee With An Author.” I hope to attract authors from Evansville, IN and the surrounding areas to attend these events as guests of honor. If you are an author and are interested in this type of event please contact me via my website.
