The Beacon’s #WestVolusiaCounty Visitor’s Guide Article

Since I’m currently vertical for a short time, though still coughing like mad, I thought I’d take a moment to share this very nice article about St. Johns River Eco Tours (and me), which is currently being featured in the Volusia County Visitors Guide. It was distributed widely throughout the county, and is a handout at the visitors center, as well, so lovely publicity for both the tours and my books.

I’ve mentioned before how much I enjoy building a local readership, and how loyal mine is becoming. I can’t recommend exploring opportunities of this sort enough. Put on your thinking caps and find local venues for readings, signings, and any other form of meeting the public you can find. These folks are simply the best support you can get, not only for direct purchases, but for helping spread the word about your books. And as an extra bonus, it is a JOY to meet readers face to face, answer their questions, and take note of what they like (or don’t like) about your books. I look forward to each and every event I have on my calendar, and count myself lucky to have these chances to get to know my readers.

    • Thanks, Darlene. Glad you enjoyed it. And don’t you just love your local readers? Sometimes getting out and talking to them is exactly what you need to get your head on straight, so you can write the rest of your book. 🙂

  1. What a lovely piece – particularly like the ‘prolific author’ comment.
    Hope you feel better soon, we must be doing this in tandem – I’ve been minus my voice for nearly 2 weeks, and now the coughing keeps catching me out just when I think its gone away. Not ideal for someone who earns the largest part of her income by talking!

    • Awww, I’m sorry to hear you’re battling a bug, too, Debby. Yeah, it’s ridiculous. Not like we have TIME to spare for this kind of thing, either. Hope you feel better very soon. (And me, too.) I enjoyed the ‘prolific’ comment, too. I think she’s impressed with how many books I’ve done in 3 years, because I’m a bit long in the tooth to be working this hard. But hey, it beats the rocking chair, any day, right? 😀 Feel better!
