While I always had an idea what it would be like to sit a booth at a con, I never had the actual experience. While this wasn't just me sitting at a table chock full of my own books to sell, nevertheless, it gave me a taste of what's to come. I'm now both excited and terrified.
The first thing I learned, came from an early memory of Roadhouse. Be nice.
The next thing I learned, was body language.
All in all, it was a great experience, and gave me some lessons learned for sitting a table. Mainly, advertising, organization, and a helpful crew of people who are all on the same page. I can't wait until the next convention to apply these ideas. And I can't wait until I have my own booth with some shiny new books written by C.R. Langille.
