Our First Panel Event

Eastchester-20140929-00120What if nobody comes? – probably the most pressing question on our minds on Monday, 29th September, as we prepared for our first Westchester Indie Author panel event at Eastchester Public Library in Westchester County, New York. Fortunately, by 7pm we knew we didn’t need to put plan B into effect (plan B being head for the bar across the street). We didn’t fill all the available seats by any means, but we had an audience.

The panel was made up of authors Mel Parish, Carol Dommermuth, d.r.deutsch and Julianna M. Dawson.  With Carol as moderator of the event entitled ‘Self-publishing – Is It For You?’, we discussed why we write, what led us to self-publishing and our own writing process before opening up the session to questions from the audience.

To our delight there was no shortage of questions on everything from formatting to marketing and the session came to an end at 9pm only because the library was about to close.

With first-time nerves behind us we now look forward to similar future events, including our next panel at Rye Library on 13th November, 2014.

Our First Market Event – Hastings, August 2014

The first attempt at anything is always nerve-wracking, you never know quite what to expect, and that is how it was on Sunday August 10, when we participated in our first flea market. The weather obliged by being sunny and dry but minus the heat and humidity one normally expects in August., a welcome relief when faced with being outside from 10am until 4pm!

2014-08-10 09.10.17 The group is still small so we didn’t have a lot of books to offer and the crowds ebbed and flowed throughout the day, but we got a reasonable amount of traffic to our table and a good deal of interest in Westchester Indie Authors Group itself.                                                                                     DSC02399

All in all it was a valuable learning experience, one which we hope to take advantage of at future markets, including our next appearances at Pearl River Lions Club Annual Flea Market and Craft Fair on September, 20, 2014 and again at Hastings Flea on October 12.
