Morning Star in Warwick, RI -Success!

Morning Star Christian Bookstore in Warwick, RI ...my first signing event for the AMG Publishers edition of Swords of the Six! The store hasn't had success with book signing events... until today.
The store manager, Joe, was very friendly (in fact the employees were really great). I will be returning to this store in the Fall to a do a follow-up event and introduce readers to my second novel.
They had 25-copies of my book in stock and Kelley and I sold 17... a figure I was thrilled with as the first part of the day was fairly quiet. Andrew (my son) contributed with smiles for every customer (-:

That's wonderful Mr. Appleton! God blessed you greatly; I'm so pleased with your success :D

That's so awesome! We'll hope for even more in April, (although if you ask me, I'd say 17 out of 25 is pretty darn good.) :D I have my school preparing to advertise and I'm telling everyone I know.

BTW, that picture of you and your son is absolutely adorable!!! He's so very, very cute! Makes you just want to kiss him. :D

Horray! So glad that it was such a successful day!

This signing will open doors at other stores in the Morning Star chain that were unwilling to hold an author signing.
This coming Saturday I'll be at Barnes & Noble. B&N has also been difficult to schedule signings with so I am hoping to sell out their stock and use that sales history to get into other B&N.

Congratulations!! I'm about to start reading your book myself, thanks for the copy! Are you just going to tour in RI for now?

Scott Appleton said...

Hi Noah,
No, I have signings booked (so far) in CT, RI, MA, NY, and IL... with lots more to come. I will be visiting the west coast sometime this Fall.

Congrats on the event! The table and the poster look fabulous.

WELCOME TO THE WRITING SITE OF SCOTT APPLETON

"Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones." -Proverbs 16:24

In a world where morality is forsaken and Christ neglected, wholesome books are uncommon. The themes of my writing are love, self-sacrifice, and honor.

I see my generation turning from God to the gods of this world. I see homes torn apart in the pursuit of pleasure and self-gratification. Children are murdered by the millions every year . . . without ever seeing the world outside their mothers' wombs. Through fiction I strive to encourage those who are willing, to stand against these things and be heroes and heroines; chivalrous, gentle, full of righteous indignation, and the fear and love of their Creator.
