While I was in Texas, my box of 20 copies of Griffin’s Feather arrived. I plan on using these copies for some smaller book signings, but my highest priority purpose for these copies is to set up an online shopping cart where distant friends and family can purchase a copy directly from me. That will give me the opportunity to sign the book, personalize it if they want me to, and then ship the book out to them.
I’m not trying to replace the regular book sellers out there. Not by a long shot. I don’t have the infrastructure, buying power, or shipping agreements with the various carriers to make the shipping cheap. As a matter of fact, it costs me $4.50 to get a book out to someone via USPS media mail. I have to pass this cost on to the buyers. I deeply apologize for doing so, but it’s how things need to be.
If you’re interested in getting a signed copy from me, and we’re just too far away from one another to make an in-person meeting reasonable, feel free to snag a copy from me here on my site, and I’ll get it out to you!
