So Arcane Publishing was at The Secret Vintage Fair at Colchester Castle last Saturday. It was the first time I Am a Muse was made available to the public at the special price of £6 (instead of £7.99) and this was pre-publication! I Am a Muse was on display on Matt ArtPix's super stall!
Granted, people don't go to a vintage fair to buy books. But these events are well attended - this particular fair was a massive success and the venerable castle was absolutely packed! - and are an ideal place to do a bit of advertising - and we think the book fits well with the vintage and handmade ethic. Constance Blackwell's The Pleasure Gardens is a club night that pays tribute to vintage! (And Matt ArtPix has designed the I Am a Muse cover, plus all the promotional material for the book!)
The Book of Thoth will be even better for these types of events - set in the 20s, with time travelling, Victorian jewellery, a manor house full of history, alchemy labs and strange antiques...
So... The fair... Quite a few people read the poster, some others picked up a flyer, a few took a flyer away with them, some others put the one they were looking at back on the table when I told them they were free and they could keep them... Thank you to the people who were brave enough to buy the book!
Please do send your feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org!
I will add a review/feedback page on the Miss Gish website as soon as I get anything to put on there...
From 15th April, I Am a Muse will be available to buy from The Book Inn in Leigh-on-Sea.
Arcane Publishing will be attending a few more events in the forthcoming months, sharing a stand with Matt ArtPix. I will post more details about these on this blog and on the PURCHASING OUR BOOKS PAGE on the Arcane Publishing website.
I think therefore I write.
