Any author will agree that writing a book is hard work. You spend hours choosing the perfect title. You research diligently and rewrite chapters many times before you're finally satisfied with the outcome.
You cry with your characters when love is lost, and you rejoice with your characters over newfound love. Your characters and your book become a part of you.
By the time your book makes it to the publishing stage, you have invested a lot of time and effort in the process of writing it. You feel proud of what you've accomplished, and you can't wait to share your success with others.
Planning a book signing party is a fun way to celebrate your book launch with your friends, family, and fans.
Have you ever attended a book signing event that was boring? Unfortunately, many book signings consist of a line of people waiting to have their books signed and a few moments of conversation with the author. It's not a lot of fun for the people standing in line waiting for their turn.
Banish boredom and make your book signing memorable by throwing a party to celebrate your success.
Choose a location
The local bookstore isn't the best place to throw a party. Instead, choose to have your party at your home or at a friend or family members home. If you don't have the adequate space, consider renting a community center or other event center for your party.
Planning the food
Whether you decide to serve an entire meal or just have appetizers and drinks is totally up to you. A fun way to enjoy food is to plan foods that go with the book. For instance, if your book takes place in Italy, you can serve an Italian feast. If your book takes place in a particular historic era, you could serve foods that were popular during that time.
Choose a few quality wines to serve, but provide plenty of non-alcoholic beverages for non-drinkers to enjoy.
You could also choose a tea-party theme and serve several teas with finger foods and light desserts.
Flowers, candles, and music
Romance will be in the air when you choose your party decorations carefully. Contact your local florist and order several floral arrangements to use as table centerpieces. Nothing says romance like flowers. Don't forget to order a nice floral arrangement to place on the table where you will be signing copies of your book.
Print out several excerpts from your book, especially those with romantic words being spoken between characters. Print them on cards and place in front of the flowers. This will get your guests intrigued and excited to read your book.
Don't forget to add some candlelight. Flickering candles bring ambiance and romance to any room.
Everyone loves a good love song. Soft music playing in the background will evoke thoughts of romance in the minds of guests.
You worked hard to get your book finished and published. Now it's time to celebrate your success. Book signing parties should never be boring. With a little planning you can throw a book signing event that's romantic and fun for you and your guests.
