I just got back from San Diego Comic-Con!! Here I am with my husband, rocking our fairy tale costumes: We’re already contemplating what we might be next year. I suggested Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask (adolescent dream come true!), and he said he’d consider it… if we could zombify them. Ha! I guess we’ll see. Last week I talked about the what, how, and why of author panels. Today I’m offering tips for an even more intimidating type of presentation: when you have to go it alone. When Cinder came out, I was more-or-less thrown into the deep end as far as author presentations go. The day of Cinder’s release I had my launch party in Tacoma, WA. The next evening I was at Joseph-Beth Booksellers in Cincinnatti giving my first solo presentation as a published author.
