It would be nice if Amazon allowed books you buy for independent bookstores to count toward your ratings. Ha! These were delivered today!
I have 30 paperback books that have already been sold…now I just have to brave the holiday traffic and distribute these to the stores that bought them. They are all to be paid up front, no consignments. A tiny trickle in the river that is exposure, but I am hoping to stir some local interest. I also like the idea of supporting the local independent bookstores and having them support me. We have a dozen or more such stores, so this could be interesting. I have two radio stations that I am sending copies to. They are both talk stations and review books and interview authors on Saturdays. So we will see what happens with that. Autographed copies are being sent out this week (you know who you are) but may not arrive before Christmas.
Went to the grocery store in my fuzzy slippers for the second time this week. They aren’t even pretty fuzzy slippers. Starting to feel like one of those shoppers that gets their picture passed around the internet. I am really getting too comfortable with this whole, “work at home” thing. However, I do recall showing up for my nursing job once with my scrubs on inside out.
Here are some pretty flowers from the garden today. Something to take your mind off the ice and snow for a moment.
