Westfarms Mall in Farmington, CT
Notes: This event started slow. I only sold 5 books in the first hour. But after 1 o'clock hit sales snowballed. We sold 24 books and the staff said I can come back anytime I want. I'm going to do another signing at this store. It is fascinating to me how the BordersExpress and Waldenbooks stores seem to consistently sell my book so well.
So, WHAT'S NEXT? I've been asking myself that question for the past two months as sales for Swords of the Six continue to rise despite the fact that I have only done this in the time I have available away from my night job. God is in my writing endeavors; I know that. But more and more my focus at my hourly job has been difficult to maintain. My wife and I talked it over and we reached a decision: August will be my last month in the factory. Starting the first week of September I'm going back to writing and book-promoting Full-Time. I feel great about this decision. Here's the Plan:
September - November Book signings in all of New England
December until whenever! My wife and I are packing, moving out of our apartment, getting in the car and driving out to Indiana to start a national book tour that will include Atlanta, GA.
