At our May meeting, Stacy Riedel, author of The King is Dead and The Field, told us about her often humorous book tour adventures. Ms. Riedel gave a lot of marketing pointers including saying “yes” to everything (book clubs, open mikes, etc.) and how to deal with hecklers (ignore them).

She was very encouraging particularly when she said, “When you finish a book, you’re a rare breed, you’re a rock star. Be proud and use that. When you act deserving, you are deserving. Writing is the coolest job in the world.” I have to agree!
