Goodreads asked Doris Gaines Rapp:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

Doris Gaines Rapp Oh wow! If you aren't having the best time of your life, re-think that writing-thing. I love scheduling book signings and meeting all the great readers in the stores. I have had 8 or 9 at Barnes and Noble stores across the country as I travel in the last year. The stores have been great and the readers are fantastic! Remember, unless you're an A-list writer, a book signing is not about selling books. It's about meeting people and getting your name and book info out to the public. I hand out business-card-size cards with pictures of my books on them and their ISBN numbers while at the signing table. And I have a ball!!!
