Event Report - Colby Author Roundup

On Friday, November 18, left for a three-day trip. The goal of the trip was to do the Author Roundup at the Prairie Museum of Art and History in Colby, Kansas, on Saturday the 19th.

I hit a few museums and libraries on the drive up and sold some copies of Kansas, 1874. At the Roundup I sold seven books, plus placed several copies of three titles at the museum gift shop. I also took several pictures along the way. I didn't take as many as I wanted, though, mainly because Saturday morning was windy and cold.

The only problem with the trip was that I managed to crack my windshield. It looks like replacing it won't be too expensive or take too much time. So aside from that mistake on my part, this trip paid off nicely.

That was my last event of 2011. Overall I have to say that I had a good time this year. I did pretty well in terms of book sales. I went to some places that I had never been to before, or hadn't visited in a long time. I met plenty of people and on some occasions took pictures of the sights along the way.

I have a handful of conventions that I want to get to next year. I don't know how many book talks I'll be doing; I have some places to contact, while others I'll just wait and see.

So, what's next here at the blog? Well, there will be more short story posts because I have more of them to upload. I think I'll also post some of the pictures I took and write about what, why, and so on. And there will be some big news in the next week or so.

See you then!
