There are a few facts that new authors may not be aware of when trying to sell our books. Some are good and some are not so good. We are at others mercy, and sometimes that’s good, and sometimes that’s not so good.
We’ve worked hard, found a publisher, paid our hard earned money, went through the production process, and now we have our masterpiece in our hand. We’re thrilled! We’re proud and excited, and when that first sale comes, we’re elated and inspired.
I was told by a book store to send them a copy of my book for their scrutiny before allowing me to do a book signing event. This can be pretty common and I can understand that they want to see the product before allowing someone to sit and sell something they may not approve of. But, I don’t normally do that.
Why? Thanks for asking.
