This month, fellow author Vicki Lesage and I did a joint book signing at WHSmith Paris and were thrilled to meet some of our readers... and give them one of our new Velvet Morning Press bookmarks!
Thanks very much to the folks at WHSmith for setting up a lovely table and making us feel welcome. The shop sells PARIS, RUE DES MARTYRS, by yours truly, and CONFESSIONS OF A PARIS PARTY GIRL by Vicki Lesage, as well as a lot of other great books. And paperbacks are on sale four for the price of three!
Our English language bookshops in Paris have been very supportive. My message to all indie authors is this: Reach out to your local shops and build relationships. Readers will have the opportunity to discover new voices, the bookshop will have the opportunity to introduce these new voices, and you will have the opportunity to sell your books. Everyone wins!
