Goals for 2015

It is now 2015.  That means out with the old…AND IN WITH THE NEW!

First, I have some very good news.  Another library in the Bay State has picked up both volumes of Sunnyville Stories.  This time, it’s the Morrill Memorial Library of Norwood, MA!

This ties into one of my big goals for 2015.  My overall plan is to raise awareness of my work and make more sales.  To this end, I aim to get Sunnyville into at least ten more libraries and to get copies into libraries here in my new home state of North Dakota.  I will keep you posted on my progress, but I’m also relying on all of you to spread the word.  Remember that Sunnyville and Von Herling are both stocked by the Brodart Company as well as Ingram and Baker & Taylor.

My big priority will be to finish Sunnyville Stories Volume 3 and get it put to bed by June 30.  As this year unfolds, I will share my progress and outline my plans to promote the work for the bookstore & library market.

Stay tuned, readers.  2015 promises to be a great year for Sunnyville Stories and its publisher, Different Mousetrap Press!

    Why are you so interested in getting into libraries, as opposed to actual bookstores? Libraries take almost everything. It’s not an achievement and it hurts your longterm sales. Is it part of your weird 80s obsession?

    Looking forward to seeing this comment deleted because thinking about it makes you uncomfortable.

      I also work on getting bookstores and mail order houses to carry my books. The library market is one I can’t pass up on; in the 2011 fiscal year, libraries spent US$1.23 billion on acquiring new materials and 65% of that was on print materials.

    Do you have trouble understanding people’s questions Max, or are you being deliberately obtuse?

    • Max West says:

      I understood the question and answered it. The library market is a very profitable one that I can’t overlook; that’s over a billion that they spend for getting new materials.
