Join Felice and her guest, aspiring author, Joel Cobbs. Joel has a unique job, that of a merchandise specialist at Books A Million. Among his other job descriptions, he places large book orders for authors signing books. He has observed the procedure, and he is aware of the reason authors often fail to get in the door and make the book signing a reality. During this interview you will learn insider tips that will help you to obtain book signings at your local book store or book store chain. Joel will discuss the do's and don'ts involved in the process, whether you are an author with a royalty publisher or you are a self-published author wanting to set up a session to meet your audience. Bookstores have banned specific authors for incorrect protocol. Joel explains that book signings are highly likely if you know the correct procedure. As a result, the sales will make you, your publisher (if you have one), and the bookstore want to invite you back again. If you are an author, you won't want to miss this show!
