Tonight at THE FINISHING TOUCH in downtown Summerville, South Carolina during the Third Thursday event, I sold —
1 copy of AFTER JEWEL
1 copy of METAL MAN WALKING
1 copy of ANNIE DREAMING
No one purchased THE EIGHT FOOT BOY which is one of my favorites.
All in all, a productive evening.
And, I also sold 2 copies of GANI & SEAN ( as R Jack Winter ). A very productive evening.
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.
This morning, sold a copy of METAL MAN WALKING ( my first novel ) and a copy of AFTER JEWEL ( my latest novel ) to the same person. Once again, I thoroughly enjoyed signing my works. I hope and trust she loves them both!
