I’ve worked hard this week to prepare for having a table at the Christmas Market at the Mennonite Heritage Village Museum. I was so excited when the museum offered me a spot at the fair to advertise my book which is for sale in their gift shop. I hope my being there and talking to folks about Lost on the Prairie can generate lots of sales for the museum.
I am so pleased that everyone selling their items and all the visitors who attend the market will have to present proof of vaccination and that everyone will be masked.
I was also glad to hear that the museum’s exhibition about Mennonites At War is being held over. I haven’t had a chance to see it yet and I am looking forward to that.
I’ve assembled a display of photos and personal items that belonged to my grandparents who inspired the story in my novel. I have sample copies of my newsletter and some signage with reviews and sales achievements.
Everyone told me before I published my book that you have to work just as hard if not harder to promote and sell your novel as you do writing it. I think they were right. Luckily talking about my book and meeting people are two of my favorite things so I am looking forward to today.
I’d love to see you there if you can make it.
