More From the Book Signing

Here I am talking with a fellow author about my book. My mom at my side supporting my dreams. -Shantina Wilson

Book Signing a Success

Today was the big event, at least for me. I attended my first book signing at the local library in Lake City, FL. I got a chance to meet fellow authors as well as discuss my work and what I have coming up next. It was great to see support from friends and family and I look forward to having more. Thank you so much for making this a success. Shantina Wilson

My First Book Signing

Well, it has been a while since my last post, but I have been busy finishing up new books and trying to decide which one to publish next. I have a lot of irons in the fire with the book promotion of "Think Before You React." I will be having my first book signing at the Columbia County Library October 27,2012 from 2-4 please come out!!!! I have been selling books out of the trunk of my car and however else just to get the word out there. I also had a write up in the local newspaper, which was an experience in itself. Apparently, the local editor of the paper is still in the negative frame of mind when it comes to self publishing. So that was really a struggle but I made it happen. I am working on who and how to go about publishing my next book. I am up in the air about things because my first experience was a huge eye opener. I know a lot more now going into this so I am really checking the fine print. I have had some contact with other companies with what looks to be great ideas on the top but it's the middle and end that concern me. Anyway, faithful friends and family are keeping my going and of course my faith in the mighty man above. Stay tuned to see where this road takes me.

think before you react sample coming soon

Ok so now that I am published and doing my own "word of mouth" campaign. I will be offering sample chapters to the public for feedback and hopefully to generate interest. All feedback and comments can be made to my assistant lachelle redd on twitter. Please be honest and help me get the word out.

I know that it has been a while.  I have been promoting my book via word of mouth through friends and family.  I have also been mailing flyers and making contacts through email.  Now on to the other business.

Yes, I have been adding to my library of novels.  Deon's story must be told and so thanks to the backlash from "Think Before You React," I have started to tell his side and he lived it.  Look out cause Deon is coming strong.  I have also been working on "Spoiled."  This urban masterpiece involves a young woman who is just as the titled suggests "spoiled" but she is soon to learn that life is not a free ride and when your free ride is up, the bills come a callin.'

Thank you to my followers, fans, friends and family.  Your support keeps me strong and keeps me going.

Slowly But Surely

Hello, well it has been a while, but the reports on my book selling overseas have come in  and I am very excited.  I am still working hard trying to get my name and my work out there.  It is slow going, but I will succeed.  I have contacted a few local bookstores and newspapers.  Right now I haven't heard much back, but keep your eyes and ears open. 

And for those of you who have jumped on this wild ride and supported me through purchasing my book or just giving me words of encouragement I thank you.  You are the reason I go on.

For those who have liked us on Facebook and responded with great positive comments, I thank you very much.  You are the ones that can help make this happen.  Spread the word about "Think Before You React." 

Right now I am working on getting myself out there and trying to get on with book stores and Amazon so that my book will be more available.  Please hang in there with me.  I am sure this is gonna be a learning experience and a bumpy road.
