While the goal at Saturday’s Local Author’s Book Fair was to sell books…I don’t think too many of us did. But that’s okay!
Conversations I had with fellow authors were fantastic: One lives in the extremely rural Maine town I lived next to for many years (unless you’ve lived there you’ve probably never heard of it). One is newly self-published and too shy to talk up her new ‘baby’.
Another sent me to a site of New Hampshire based anthologies in different genres that I plan to look into…
One author manned her table and set-up half for one of our number who currently fights a serious illness and could not attend so she would still have opportunity to sell some copies.
Several expressed an interest in banding together to try again…
It is a lonely profession, writing…but we share many common struggles and each time we join forces it makes us mighty.
Keep watching…Northern New Hampshire Authors are going to be a Thing!
