  Linda E. Meckler's Success Story
I Made $700.00 at a Craft Fair

In December of 2005 my Church held its annual Christmas Craft Fair. I did not sign up since it was a craft fair, which to me meant things made by hand. A friend of mine, a fantastic seamstress, asked me if I wanted to share her table. I immediately said yes. The tables were set up outdoors inside a large tent. The tent was jammed with tables of every kind of homemade items and also store items for sale. The church was putting on an electronic extravaganza, while also performing a play.

I was at the entrance to the tent hidden behind all kinds of merchandise. I did not have any signs or a large picture of my book. I just had a stack of my books, “Ghost Kids Trilogy,” myself, and my voice. There were no other books for sale in the tent. I asked each person as they walked around from table to table if they had any children. If the person was older I asked them if they had any grandchildren. I made it a point to tell them, that grandparents were very involved in my book plot, and that this book was a positive family relationship.

If children were walking around by themselves in the age range of eight to fourteen, I gave them a flyer describing the story and characters in my book and asked them to bring their parents back so they could see my book. I was always told that the author is the person who has the passion to sell their own book. In this case it worked. Over two weekends of six hours a day, I sold (70) of my books. My books retailed for $11.95 and I sold them for an even $10.00. Many of the parents bought two books for presents for other children.

I was really amazed when one woman wanted to give me $20.00 to sign my book to her personally. I told her there was no charge for me signing my book. She had made me feel special. Even though I belonged to this Church, most of the thousands of people who walked through the craft show were complete strangers to me. One woman, who did not have any children, bought my book to donate to her local library. I want to thank Infinity Publishing for making it possible for me to see my words in a published book.
