Tonight I sold 2 copies of ANNIE DREAMING and 1 copy of AFTER JEWEL during something called Third Thursday in my small city in the Low Country. I will not make very much money from these sales, but I will – I hope – get read and perhaps shared. Additionally I am now established as a featured author in a local storefront, THE FINISHING TOUCH.
The owner will stock my books ( which I, of course, will provide ). For every sale, she’ll get 1/2 and I’ll get 1/2 meaning she’ll make more money than I will.
Nevertheless, she carries the business license while I write novels. Between you and me, I’d rather write books than run a business.
So here’s to selling books on consignment.
