I fast-tracked my book publishing plan so I could participate in The Dock Bookshop’s Spring Fling on April 15. I was so excited when the book got approved on KDP and immediately proceeded to order my author copies on April 2. Then came the disappointment when I learned that author copies ship slowly, so even with expedited shipping, my books weren’t guaranteed to arrive before the 15th. I continued preparing anyway, and intended to make it a book promo event if it couldn’t be a book signing. I was hesitant to invite people personally though, to avoid an awkward situation of “you made me drive all the way just to scan a QR code to amazon?!”. Today, I received a favorable shipping update and raised hopes that books will arrive on time.
Here are the details for the event.
