Following my own advice, I’ve restocked two stores in the small town near me with DESCENT and BLAZE.
This happened in two ways.
As per the advice I give in the guide, I went by one of the stores and noticed they were down to 2 copies of Descent and none of Blaze. I called and asked if I could bring more. The store bought 6 or each and agreed to buy 10 of AVALANCHE as soon as I receive the print editions.
The other store send me a message asking for more books. I didn’t even have to go there to check on the stock.
We are heading into summer, hence tourist season and that’s when the books tend to sell well in our town. The timing couldn’t have been better.
My books are now selling in Lambert’s Pharmacy, The Dollar and General Store, and Sobeys. They get face out display in an area where customers can easily see them.
The interesting one to me is the Dollar and General Store. The novels sell for $22.99 Canadian, so I didn’t think this would be a great place to stock the books. The store wanted to support local authors, so we tried it. This is the fourth time I’ve had to restock there, which makes me very happy.
