Well it feels like a huge accomplishment to me:
This morning, my new book Relations: McEmpire generated it's 100th sale. In recent weeks sales were slumping and it seemed like there was a force field blocking the 100 mark after a rapid march up to the mid 80s. But then the kindly folks of Riverside-Salem UCC church were nice enough to have me out to Grand Island to read from my book yesterday and I sold a bunch of copies and had a lot of fun reading passages. That seemed to prime the pump so to speak and I sold another copy online this morning, and just like that, I was at 100. Not too bad for a book that's been mostly sold out of my backpack or at local independant bookstores in an abysmal Bush administration economy.
Speaking of retailers, I have a new version of Relations: McEmpire coming out soon (with larger print and an ISBN number: 0-9767717-0-5) and I'm very eager to start selling those but I have a bit of backstock to get through first, and there are a number of outlets that have been kind enough to sell my book, but they're not generating many sales. It would help me tremendously if these places could sell more copies:
Rust Belt Books - 202 Allen St (Buffalo - Allentown)
Talking Leaves - 951 Elmwood Ave (Buffalo - Elmwood Village)
Talking Leaves - 3158 Main St. (Buffalo - University Heights)
WNY Peace Center - 2123 Bailey (Buffalo - East Side)
Abbey Grange Books - 239 Lexington Ave (Buffalo - West Side) Tell a friend!
If you know of any other places that would be interested in selling this book, please let me know. For more about the book, click here: http://www.amprosoft.com/books/Relations
And lastly, if you've already read the book, there is still a little bit of time left to submit a back cover blurb for the new edition. Just write two to five sentences about why this is a good book to read, what you liked about it, etc. and email it to me
