Coffee, Tea, or a Copy of My Book?

Here’s a great new venue idea for author appearances: airport bookstores! Read what Austin S. Camacho has to say about his pleasant experiences signing books at various airport bookstores. (Link via Buzz, Balls & Hype.)

He notes: “At all 3 airports near me, the managers complained that nobody ever comes out to sign at their stores. Not only were they more willing than most stores to organize an event, but they all asked me to book a return visit at the end of the first one.”

You may remember Austin’s defense of genre fiction here on the blog. Now, he’s just released a new non-fiction book, Successfully Marketing Your Novel in the 21st Century. Details are here.

And if you’d like to meet Austin yourself, he has a bunch of signings scheduled, including one this Saturday in Old Town Alexandria, at Books-A-Million, 503 King Street, from 2 pm to 5 pm. More information about additional signings can be found here.
