I love this. I love sitting on panels and meeting readers, both old and new, love hearing your stories and signing your books. Thank you.
I don’t love it when I walk into a store and cannot find my books. I don’t love it that the bookstore has one copy buried in the weight loss section, with just the spine showing, or on the New Biography shelf (not even a table). All those front of store tables you see when you walk into your local bookshop are paid placements. My publisher is paying for that placement, and yet I haven’t, not once, seen Moose on front tables.
So, I have a favor to ask. Can you please email me, and let me know where you’re finding Moose in the store, including the day you saw it, and the exact location in the store, along with the store name? Also let me know how you found it, if you had to ask information, etc.
I have been receiving emails from people saying they cannot find Moose or even Straight Up And Dirty in stores. For those of you who already have copies, and for those waiting for your store to get a copy in, it’s an enormous help if you ask (via phone or in person) the sales manager of each of your local stores if they have a copy of my books. In doing so, they realize there’s a demand, and then they just may request an appearance at their store. I would be extraordinarily thankful if you could help me with this, as it will really help drive the success of Moose. So, even if you already have copies of my books, if you could please call or beg that they get my book in, that would be extremely helpful.
