Book signing

The photo is from Darius Bashar at

For the visually challenged writer, the photo shows a woman sitting at a desk writing something down in a notebook. She’s sitting inside and is framed by a window.


She had dreamed of this day for years. Writing her great novel wasn’t all that difficult, because she had a lot of stories in her. It was the publication of the book that took so much effort and time. And money too. And now she was a published author.

Her next step was to talk to a book store owner to stock her books and to arrange a book signing on the first day. Though she was a newbie, he agreed to her plan as she was very nice to talk to and the fact that she was young and pretty didn’t hurt either.

Now she sat here nervously, waiting for her first sale. Perhaps it was the beginning of a wonderful career.

  1. You always have a good story to tell. Maybe you should write a book and publish it? Or not? Of course, that would mean you would have to write an ending. Or you could be a serial writer and just keep writing new books with the same characters.

  2. Usually, it doesn’t work like this. Your agent or publisher organises a lecture tour with book signings that’s not your job as an author. The photo is very idealised, it never shows a book signing.
