The second annual Local Authors' Book Fair took place at Mysteryscape Bookstore in Overland Park, KS on Nov. 13. There were mystery authors of every kind--thriller, young adult, children's, historical, true crime, detective, cozy, and probably some overlaps. Some authors had written a mystery or two and some books of other genres and brought all of them to sell.
Friends of the authors, bookstore regulars, and passersby came in to talk to the authors, get bookmarks, business cards, and other promotional information, and to buy books for themselves or as gifts. I had fun promoting my Psycho Cat and the Landlady Mystery series and selling CATastrophic Connections. I sold to cozy mystery lovers, cat lovers, and people who wanted a gift for one of those types.
One of the local authors (in the foreground above) also writes for The News Hub. She interviewed many of the authors and wrote an article about the book fair for the site. See her article at: https://www.the-newshub.com/stories/book-fair-in-the-heartland
I had a blast and hope I'll be invited back next year.
