You might be browsing to this post wondering who would be so Texan – or so crazy – as to release their novel at a gun show. And the answer is . . . yours truly.
I will hold the release event for my novel Pilot Point at a table at the Corpus Christi Al Amin Shiners Gun Show on Saturday, November 8th. It is located at 2001 Suntide Road, just off I-37 in Corpus. Look for the building in the back. Doors open at 9am, and I will try to be there all day.
It is a fun gun show, by the way, with a lot more than guns for sale. I’ve visited it and lightened my wallet there several times.
Why am I releasing Pilot Point at a gun show? One reason is I want to take my novel to people who I think would like it. With Pilot Point being a very Texan novel and gun show attendees (like me) being very Texan, I think it a good match. And I think this a better and more interesting release than a traditional book signing at a bookstore. I intend to do those, too, but I thought a gun show would be much better place to release Pilot Point with a bang. (Sorry. I couldn’t resist.)
Besides, it’s a GUN SHOW!
Now if only there was a gun show held at an Anglican church. Remember that Pilot Point has a strong Anglican flavor, too. Oh, well.
By the way, a reminder that Pilot Point is already available in print and Kindle form. (Yes, book releases, like store “Grand Openings”, sometimes occur after a book is available.) I know not everyone can make it to South Texas for this event. ;)
I will say more between now and November 8th, so stay tuned! And don’t forget to “like” Pilot Point on Facebook.
