I went to Barnes & Noble today, the first chance I’ve had to go back since my book signing on July 24th. I wanted to see if they’d put my book out on their shelves. When I had first approached them about stocking my book, they had said they made decisions about stocking books based on how book signings went. They ordered 30 books for my signing event, knowing they could return the leftovers to the distributor.

I don’t know what they consider a successful signing (I sold 8 books), so I’ve been watching the sales/returns at Ingram to see if they’d send the books back. As of this morning, they hadn’t.

So, what did I see on their shelves?


A dream achieved. Whoo, hoo! (Happy dancing!)


What other celebrations are going on out there?

  1. Holy cow!! You’re on the same shelves as GRR Martin and Terry Pratchett! WOW! I’m so super thrilled for you! Now you’ll have to think of a promotion like another signing to get people into the store and buying those lovely books of yours! 🙂
