on other fronts – April’s going to be a good month. Two booksignings set up, one at South Hills Village and the other at Uniontown Mall – both Borders Express. And already set one more up at B&N in Greensburg; connected on the weekend with Borders and B&N in Monroeville, so hopefully one or both of those will pan out.
I’m still not sold on the “everyone’s buying online!” mantra that other authors keep telling me about. Maybe I’m just a Luddite, but I still prefer to walk into a bookstore, flip through the book itself and gaze at the cover before laying down the cash. Or, if I am buying online, I already know what I want and usually it’s out of print or just rare enough that it’s not worth driving to the bookstore to have them order it in.
as for the Amazon.com debacle – it doesn’t seem to be affecting my publisher. Although considering how few books I’ve sold through Amazon (see above) I’m not too worried about it. I’d much rather work to get those books onto the shelves into stores and let the public actually SEE it and touch it than hustle for online sales. But that’s me.
anyone else *not* an online book shopping junkie? Am I just nuts and behind the times? Would you rather buy from a bookstore than shop online?
