Smoky Days pre-order success

 

Here’s a photo of Emily and me at the Albion Fire Department’s annual fish fry, taking pre-orders for Smoky Days and Sleepless Nights. We got 32 confirmed orders just at the fish fry!

Thanks -- I have a feeling the 20th of July will be the most book I've ever sold at one signing, but that the long range sales of the book will be pretty weak. But that's okay -- you gotta start somewhere.

this is the local history one right?

That's right: Although I tried to punch it up as best I could, I figure its reader base will be limited, which is why I didn't bother approaching publishers on it. There are (what I think are) fascinating facts about the history and technology of firefighters, but here and there are also areas that would be of interest only to those who live in this area -- names and mentions of towns, mostly. It's one reason why I'm trying to keep the price down despite the illustrations: some buyers will be interested in only about half the book.

yeah, those probably do their best self pubbed and sold locally.Is there a brick and mortar bookstore there interested in local books? I usually find them whenever I travel but I have no idea how they do purchasing

I have Storm Chaser in two independent bookstores; I doubt the one in Fort Wayne will be interested in this, but the other is about 12 miles away, in a neighboring town, and probably will be. But it'll be up to me to get their attention.

Glad you like it! Sadly, it'll be gone for the rest of summer, but will probably be back this fall.
