"Ask and it is given," right?

This Saturday is a special time of celebration for me. Why? 
It will be my first book signing with all four books published this year and my first public presentation in five years at the Ignite Your Life Expo in Tampa, Florida.

Jitters? Self-doubts? Anxieties?
You bet.

All these yucky feelings started creeping in yesterday despite weeks preparing; I've happily read book signing checklists and talked with authors and speaking colleagues.

So what to do?
My answer: Reach out and ASK for even more help before more fears seep in and wash away my joyance!

I'm asking for your advice and suggestions as an author with book signing experience, or as a person who has attended book signings:

1) What are your most important suggestions for a successful book signing?
2) What's your favorite giveaway to offer i.e. A book? Lunch with you? Coaching?
3) Have you ever bundled your books? Results?
4) Do you have a book order form you might send me via a Facebook message today or tomorrow?

Anything else?

Thank you in advance for your comments of  wisdom and support!

  1. Wish I could help you but I've never done a book signing. My advice, though, is to be your bubbly, open and beautiful self and do what feels right to you. You can't go wrong with that

    1. Ahh, thanks for the kind words, Barb. I will be happy and "bubbly" and share photos afterwords.

  2. Be Lore! You got this! Your magnetic personality will shine through! So happy for you!

    1. Thank you, Michelle. Have you had a book signing...yet? It's unchartered waters for me for sure. ALl Divine, right? Congrats on the new website!

  3. Enjoy it! (Best advice I can offer!) Congratulations, Lore!
