I’ve been hard at work the past few days but on other things. I haven’t gotten as much work done on Sunnyville Stories episode 9 as I’d have liked to.
First, I’ve been continuing to track my work online to see how it is doing and how it is selling. As I reported earlier, my hometown library here in Greensboro has finally acquired four copies of Sunnyville Stories for its collection. That makes four library systems total that have my book. That’s not bad for a first-timer, but I have to keep it up.
It also came to my attention that copies of my book Sunnyville Stories Volume 1 have now been turning up on the market, both in new and used conditions. I found sellers selling copies on Amazon as well as Barnes and Noble, Alibris, and just recently, Half.com. How did these book sellers acquire said copies? My theory is that these are among the review copies I sent out long ago. They must have been donated or sold for dirt cheap to these dealers. While I won’t see any money from these secondhand sales, this is still good for me because buyers will read my work and find my blog as well as learn more about me. This may even leave them wanting to read more of my work.
Speaking of my work, I just recently filled my first order with my distributors.
BCH was just sent fifty copies of Sunnyville Stories Volume 1 for them to sell to retailers and wholesalers. See that big box in the photo? That was sent via UPS to BCH. Let’s hope these books sell.
I’ve also been making steady yet slow progress on my graphic novel Von Herling, Vampire Hunter. I’m one-third the way through with the inking. Over the next few weeks, I’ll be dividing up the workday between Von Herling and Sunnyville. Besides the finished art for Von Herling, I have to continue with Sunnyville number 9. Stay tuned for more updates.
