My wife and son are laying plans for a book release party around May 12th. That is a Tuesday so we are trying to work out whether to have it on the following Friday or the weekend. I think they have settled on having it in a local coffee shop for a couple of hours and inviting the local book movers and shakers as well as the public. Hope it flies, for their sake as well as mine. Making mental plans for direct sales myself. Thinking of events like fairs, antique shows, swap meets, Civil War reenactments, just about any place the public gathers (say, how about farmer’s markets?!)to sell copies.
