My business goes down this time of the year.  :( How about you?

Mine has been pretty busy this fall, but I did have to turn away a fair amount of October work because of the imminent arrival of our new baby.  Usually the winter months are quite slow for me, but I haven't really promoted myself for Christmas parties, or in my elf character.  I'll wait 'til next year to do that, as I think I'll appreciate a couple of months of recovery more than being busy.

October has been my busiest month ever.

I am so glad. I'm in a new area (been here just over a year) and I'm hoping all my marketing is paying off.

For the first time in years, I've seen a slight drop off in shows. But nothing I'm worrying about. I think with a little marketing effort, I could bring it back and OVER what I was doing before. I get lazy with marketing sometimes.

Just sent out a massive school/library mailing for the new school year and the booking are rolling in :) (See what a little hard work and marketing can do?)
