I had a great time at the Hulett, Wyoming Library doing a book talk. I was thrilled that so many people came and enjoyed it. I talked about how I got started writing and the self-publishing process.
The questions afterword were great and I have a few ideas for adding a couple extra things in the back of the books. I loved the request for a family tree diagram in the book. You know your readers are serious when they make notes in the book about your characters. I loved it!
I confess it was my very first public speaking engagement and I was terrified! Never in my life have I stood before people to talk. I was pleased that I didn't panic and made it through just fine. It's something that I would like to do again sometime. Being an introvert, I shocked myself when I agreed to do it! I had a blast, but now I'll have to hide at home for three days to recover. Ha!
It was a wonderful learning experience for me, and I hope that my audience left knowing more about self-publishing. Hopefully some of them will look into it and publish their own work.
