    I am scheduled to do my first Author book signing at the Queen City Indiecon in Cincinnati Ohio this October. Obviously as this is my first one, I am completely clueless. I was hoping maybe someone could give me some suggestions on things that they have done or seen in the past.

    My biggest question marks are:

    How many books do I bring with me for purchase/signing and should I bring postcards or bookmarks for people interested in buying the ebook but still want a signature?

    What exactly does a swag pack typically include and are these given away or sold?

    Where is a good place to order signage and when they say they prefer the taller sign that sits above the table, what exactly are they talking about?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
