Fiction writer JA Konrath recently completed a book tour where he logged over 11,000 miles, signed over 900 books, and visited over 100 bookstores. Konrath, like all veterans of book tours, knows that it's not about the number of books you sell at these venues (because you don't!). His reasons were:
- He wanted to meet booksellers and discuss his book series
- He wanted to sign stock and encourage them to stock him
- He wanted to impress his publisher
All attainable goals and it appears that he met them (and then some). For the rest of his blog post, go here.
