Laughs don't equal sales

Author talk audiences are very different. Last night it was mostly men who laughed at my comments on some of the characters in A New Era For Manny Youngman, especially the domineering mother and the lesbian couple. Made for a pleasant evening but I didn't sell many books so maybe I should target women audiences in future. They may not laugh as much but they seem more likely to be readers and therefor potential buyers. My next author talk will be a writers group which will probably be mainly women but then writers are not always good buyers. Still, I console myself by saying the more I get myself and my book talked about the bigger the e-book sales could become. It's all good fun, anyway.
