Good morning everyone! As you see I usually post these around 9am or so but I just could not get going. So I will continue posting in general at some point throughout every Monday unless something comes up on my side. Any-who I have big news...
Last week, I finally used my Barnes & Noble gift card from earlier Christmases ago and purchased 2 Power Ranger graphic novels. Afterward, I went to the customer service desk and asked a worker if they had "this" book by showing mine to her on my phone from their website. She said they did not but she could order me a copy if I liked, to which I finally had to admit I was the writer. I wanted it to be a surprise! Either way, she was still excited for me and actually ordered 3 copies to place on her Local Authors table.
At the time, I hadn't realized she was in fact the manager and had ordered those on the spot from the Barnes & Noble website. So after clearing things up with my literary agent (that seems like such an odd phrase to use after looking for one for such a long time) he informed me to call him as soon as they arrive and he'll walk me through several new steps that most authors don't get the chance to do. He also told me that getting physical books into Barnes & Noble isn't easy and always to start with a small amount first to not come across as being too pushy. I hope it's the start of several to come and I am so excited to have physical books available in-store soon.
As long as the demand outweighs the supply, I'm sure they would be interested in ordering more. Now, don't forget ordering directly from me still helps me out the most even if I no longer have physical copies. I can still process orders and have it sent directly to your house similarly to Roseace merchandise. We have a couple of new character tees coming out and our main monthly design is set to launch on April 1st, and no we're not fooling you.
Have a blessed day!
