About the Book:

If you’re needing a unique gift or if you’re a fan of Route 66, this new anthology is for you!

OUR TIME ON ROUTE 66 tells of good times and bad, Love and heartache, from the past to beyond tomorrow, and all of them connected by one stop, the Tower Station and U-Drop Inn on Route 66.

It started as a dirt path connecting neighbors, communities, states and a nation. Route 66 was an overland route traveled by pioneers, migrant farmers and anyone going west looking for the American dream. From wagon ruts to an asphalt paved highway, it has connected generations of people.

Five unique short stories and novellas set on historic Route 66 in Texas.

A gripping story of family betrayal, deep despair, and a young girl’s courageous triumph. MAGGIE’S BETRAYAL by Natalie Bright

A young soldier leaves his new bride for war sharing their life through letters in this heartfelt story. WAITING by Rory C. Keel

A down-on-his-luck cowboy sees opportunity in a young widow’s neglected ranch in 1944 Texas. SUDDEN TURNS by Joe Nichols

A Cherokee Chief predicts Mora O’Hara’s future as she travels The Mother Road seeking closure after a career related tragedy. SHOWDOWN AT U-DROP INN by Cait Collins

Raylen Dickey learns the difference between her friends, lovers, and enemies. FEAR OF HEIGHTS by Nandy Ekle

Book Signing Success


Book Signing Success

By Rory C. Keel

I want to thank Bob “Crocodile” Lile, owner of the Lile Art Gallery, for hosting my book signing, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Inspiration for Writers. Surrounded by beautiful paintings and sculptures on Old Route 66, his gallery made a wonderful setting for a book-signing event.

Book Signings

Book signings are one of many tools a writer can use to market their writing. A signing allows the author to meet and interact with readers while promoting their work. I had the opportunity to meet several interesting people such as car club enthusiasts, a motorcycle rider, and a waitress from a pizza restaurant, all who had their own interesting life stories.

Prepare

Before you can have a successful book signing, you as a writer must prepare.

1. Secure a location. The usual places such as bookstores and libraries are excellent places to start. However, don’t overlook stores or businesses that relate to your story or are in a high traffic area.

2. Bring the necessary supplies. Have a sufficient supply of books and business cards and have the ability to accept payments, whether cash, checks or credit Cards.

Promote

To help you have a successful book signing promote, promote, promote. Place a listing in your local newspaper or community publication. Publish the event on your website, Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and other social media outlets. If you have a blog, write an entry describing your book-signing event.

Success

The opportunity to meet new people and promote yourself as a writer means success and you might even sell a few books!
