It was just a teeny little mistake. And in fact it wasn't even a MISTAKE or a typo it was the lack of a space.
See, the other day I emailed my postcards announcing my book launch for Chapter & Hearse. Because of space limitations on the sticker I placed on the postcards, I typed the following:
BOOKSIGNING: Aug. 5-7pm
Do you anything wrong with that? I sure didn't. To me it said AUGUST 5, 7 PM
But one of my readers wrote to me and said, 5-7 p.m. But WHEN????
I have a feeling I'll be sitting all alone at my book launch next week.
Do you think I'm doomed or would you have read it as August 5th, too?
And just for a laugh (because i could sure use one about now), go watch this video by Parnell Hall about his experiences at signings where no one shows up.
